Description of problem:
On an Intel D815EEA2 motherboard, BIOS P21, with a Logitech Cordless Keyboard
attached to USB port, the boot process hangs after the line 'apm: BIOS version
1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)'. Legacy USB in the BIOS is enabled,
disabling it does not help. Other USB keyboards do not exhibit this issue.
When plugged into a PS/2 port with a USB->PS/2 adapter, the boot process works
normally. Problem exists on all Red Hat 9 kernels that I've tried and I also
had the same issue with Red Hat 7.3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in a Logitech Cordless Keyboard into the USB port.
2. Boot Linux.
Actual Results: Boot process hangs after the line:
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
Expected Results: Boot should have completed.
This is not just with the Logitech Cordless Keyboard, but now any USB keyboard.
Although once I did plug in a Microsoft Natural Elite USB and it did boot OK.
But now I an unable to duplicate with that keyboard or any other one.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
