Description of problem:
Early under non-rhgb boot (remove "rhgb" from the kernel line in
grub.conf), modprobe complains about cannot find keybdev and mousedev.
The rest of the boot succeeds, and normal operation ensues.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install Fedora Core 2 test 1 Workstation.
2. Remove "rhgb" from the kernel line in /boot/grub/grub.conf.
Actual Results: Complaints about keybdev and mousedev missing.
Complaints go to VGA console, and do not show up in "dmesg" nor in
Expected Results: No complaints.
Configuration is VGA console, USB wheel mouse, AT Translated Set 2
keyboard on isa0060/serio0.
This happened to me too some time ago. The problem is those modules do not
exist under Kernel 2.6 and they have to be replaced by usbmouse and usbkbd
or whatever in rc.sysinit. I have done this and I am not getting any errors.
HOWEVER, you also need to remove them from modprobe.conf.dist AND
there is an occurance in some files in /etc/hotplug stuff (search for keyboard).
After commenting all that stuff I got a perfectly working system. This and the
/proc/bus/usb stuff that should become /sys/bus/usb in rc.sysinit would result
in a perfectly smooth system!
Actually, you shouldn't need to load anything in rc.sysinit.
I agree. I have all that commented out (the block under the line
However, the comment sais to get it from hotplug, but last time I
checked hotplug was also referring to the wrong module.
Hotplug may be referring to the wrong module, yes. But rc.sysinit
shouldn't even be trying to load keybdev/mousedev on 2.6 (they are
built in, as they really should be.)
No complaints about this here, so I'll close it for now. Please reopen
if you still have issues.
