Description Phill Edwards 2004-03-04 08:06:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; 

Description of problem:
When trying to install Fedora Core 1 on a Micron PIII or P4 laptop, 
the keyboard locks out as soon as the first console dialog (asking 
whether to verify the media) appears.

The same problem occurs with Red Hat 9 in that the keyboard locks 
when the first dialog of a text install appears. RH9 could be 
installed using a graphical install. Fedora cannot be installed using 
a graphical install due to the text based media check dialog.

I saw a bug report suggesting that is is a PS/2 probe issue. I cannot 
plug in a PS/2 mouse as suggested as there is no external PS/2 port 
on the laptop!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot Fedora Core 1 from CDROM
2.Hit enter to start graphical install
3.Media check dialog appears and the keyboard is locked out

Actual Results:  The keyboard is completely locked out. The only 
thing that can be done is to power off.

Expected Results:  Should be able to dismiss the dialog using the tab 
and enter keys.

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
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
