Description Sammy 2004-04-19 13:27:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux; X11; en_US, en_US.UTF-8, en) (KHTML, like Gecko) Description of problem: I have had this problem for a long time now. All packages updated daily to the development tree, machine DELL precision 350 with hyperthreading and running smp kernel. I have "pnpbios=off acpi=off" in grub.conf. The keyboard is the standard DELL keyboard (PS/2). My mouse is USB mouse. Mouse works fine. The problem seems to be for the serio. For the non-working kernel I get the message: i8042.c: Can't read CTR while initializing i8042 For the working kernel (which is taking the source rpm and turning off everything that I do not use, including acpi etc.) I get: kernel: serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq 12 kernel: serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x6rq 1 kernel: input: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.6-1.32x How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install the latest devel kernel 2. reboot machine 3. try keyboard Additional info:
Comment 1 Sammy 2004-04-22 14:06:22 UTC
SOLUTION -------------- If you compile the USB support (ehci-hcd, ohci-hcd, and uhci-hcd only) then everything works perfectly and the keyboard is recognized and functional. I have heard this from other people as well. Any chance of making this standard for Fedora? Thanks
Comment 2 Sammy 2004-07-14 14:22:29 UTC
Arjanv kernel 2.6.7-1.486 has the usb support compiled in and solves this problem.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2004-07-14 14:32:16 UTC
Unfortunatelty this breaks a collection of other x86-32 machines that die on boot
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2004-07-14 14:32:58 UTC
(I've sent Arjan a test patch to fix the problem without compiling in USB incidentally)

Comment 6 Sammy 2004-07-16 15:10:04 UTC
I just tried kernel-smp-2.6.7-1.492 and unfortunately the same problem happened.
Comment 7 Sammy 2004-07-29 15:42:14 UTC
I have tried the 1.499 arjanv smp kernel. The keyboard is still locking up at boot with the same message about the CTR.
Comment 8 Alan Cox 2004-07-29 15:59:37 UTC
What exact messages do you see in this case, and can you also attach an lspci -vxx (done with a working kernel or with usb legacy disabled in the bios)
Comment 10 Sammy 2004-07-29 16:36:20 UTC
I am getting the same message: kernel: i8042.c: Can't read CTR while initializing i8042. lspci -vxx is done on 1.492 with usb compiled in kernel.
Comment 11 Alan Cox 2004-07-29 16:56:55 UTC
Does it also report "disabling USB legacy and retrying" before this ?
Comment 12 Sammy 2004-07-29 17:49:10 UTC
No...no such message...Few lines before the CTR errror are: kernel: usbcore: registered new driver hiddev kernel: usbcore: registered new driver usbhid kernel: drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.0:USB HID core driver kernel: mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice kernel: i8042.c: Can't read CTR while initializing i8042.
Comment 13 Dave Jones 2005-10-05 23:49:50 UTC
Is this still a problem in the current rawhide kernel ?
Comment 14 Mikael Hultgren 2005-10-06 08:16:01 UTC
No, for me its fixed in the current rawhide, and has been for some time.
Comment 15 Sammy 2005-10-06 14:33:37 UTC
Yes and No! The keyboard works fine after the reboot BUT is inactive during the grub kernel selection stage.
Comment 16 Dave Jones 2005-10-06 19:56:46 UTC
at grub time, we're reliant upon the BIOS entirely for keyboard input, there's nothing we can fix there. You'll need 'usb legacy emulation' enabled in the bios for usb keyboard to work at that stage.
Comment 17 oliver b. 2005-11-24 12:08:08 UTC
I've compiled the 188.8.131.52 yesterday and have the same problem. Can't use the PS/2 keyboard. The error messages are the same. How did you fix this?
Comment 18 oliver b. 2005-11-25 09:52:55 UTC
Ok, I've disabled USB in BIOS and in the kernel. Now the keyboard works... Misterious...
