Soon as I get back to that computer I will let you know which kernel
version. Both were just recently installed, Fedora was installed
specifically for this actually, though updates have been applied.

I've tried it with other USB ports already across 5 different machines.
I've also swapped out the USB cable for another one that I knew worked fine.

I'll see what I can do about installing a minimal build onto these machines
to see if something changes.
