Description Scott Kennedy 2004-04-26 00:03:20 EDT
Description of problem: Install Fedora Core 1 on emachines 6805 using
USB keyboard.  After initial boot regular keyboard works fine. 
Upgrade to newest development release using yum.  Booting into
2.4.22-1-2174 works just fine all day long...can reboot as much as
heart desires without need of USB keyboard or anything.  Decide to
boot into newest 2.6.5-1.327 for fun.  Keyboard is not
recognized...reboot into 2.6.5 kernel using USB keyboard...no luck. 
Get slightly miffed and reboot into 2.4.22 kernel w/o USB
keyboard...regular keyboard does not work.  Reboot again into 2.4.22
w/ USB keyboard...regular keyboard STILL doesn't work.  Now filing
bug.  I'm thinking it's gotta be in a *.conf file somewhere, but I
haven't the slightest clue where that would be.  Any suggestions would
be really great b/c I don't want to hose my partition after all that work.

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

How reproducible:
See above

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: keyboard completely useless regardless of kernel used

Expected results: keyboard should be useful regardless of kernel used

For the record, the FC2T3 DVD for x86_64 has this problem as well. 
That makes 2 FC2T releases for x86_64 that cannot be made to boot on
the eMachines 6805 laptop.

Is this also related to bug 120832?
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2004-06-14 20:46:21 EDT
fixed in the current errata kernel ?
Comment 4 Marty Shannon 2004-06-15 01:07:25 EDT
I would love to test this, but the FC2 (final) DVD image won't boot on
the M6805.  If there is a way to get past the failure to recognize the
attached keyboard (it is a laptop), I'd love to give it a shot.  If
purchasing a USB keyboard will get me there, well, then, that's what
I'll do.  But please get me past that hurdle....

mass update for old bugs:

Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?
