You need to be root user to open files in the /var/log/ directory. If you're using GNOME, either log in as root user and use nano:

Code: Select all
$ su
Password:
# nano /var/log/messages

or, alternatively, use the gksu command to launch gedit as root user but with your environment variables and profile:

Code: Select all
$ gksu gedit /var/log/messages

I know you wrote that you don't have the problem in Windows, but how much total current is being drawn by all your USB devices?:

Code: Select all
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices | grep mA

C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=a0 MxPwr=100mA
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=a0 MxPwr= 98mA
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr= 30mA
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=e0 MxPwr=  0mA

Looks OK. None of your devices is pulling anywhere near the limit. so the problem lies elsewhere. Not sure where, though.

Thanks for your interesting :)

I think the problem is hp narra6 bios, not totally compatible with linux kernel.
Wait for more kernel upgrade for see if problem is solved

Thanks again
