It depends on distribution. If I remember correctly Ubuntu logs debug by 
default to /var/log/debug. On Fedora you should enable debug logging. It 
is done by syslog, /etc/syslog.conf.

Examples to try:
*.debug;*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages
*.debug /var/log/debug

Remember restart syslogd if configuration is changed.

And check also that there is no race condition in drivers that same 
usb-id is used in more than one driver at the time. You need to remove 
driver duplicate driver module and install new one. Or broke usb-id from 
driver you don't want to use and install broken driver and then install 
driver with correct usb-id.
