Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119067
Keyboard in unavailable for installation- emachines Laptop W/USB keyboard
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem:
The keyboard goes dead during the install. The laptop uses USB for
both the touchpad and the built-in keyboard. It looks like the USB
drivers aren't loaded in the kernel used for the installation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot off of the CD (iso image) on the emachines M6807 laptop
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up off of CD
2. Try to run the install
See: http://www.linuxtx.org/x86_64faq.html - you need an external
keyboard for the install.
Probably won't be fixed for FC1 - please try FC2 development.
I just tried to install Core 2 Test 3 on 6805. Will not recognize
built-in keyboard or mouse during install - must have external
keyboard and mouse to install. Once installed, I tried booting
without any attachments. Boot hangs starting up the second USB device
(ehci). If I reboot and attach a keyboard and mouse, the system will
eventually boot up (has other problems.) Still getting many messages
like this when booting:
atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 0, code 0x41 on
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes 41 <keycode>' to make it known.
