Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121694
keyboard stops working after upgrading to kernel-2.6.5-1.327
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:05:26 EST
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):
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?
fixed in the current errata kernel ?
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 ?
