Description of problem:
Installing core 1 or core 2 of fedora will not install on the new
Toshiba notebooks.  All new Toshiba notebooks come with built-in usb
keyboards now.  So before you release core 3 make sure you include usb
keyboard support that is built-in to the kernel.  I had to take the
notebook hard drive out and install Fedora using another system. 
Before I took the harddrive out recompiled the kernel with usb
keyboard support.

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

How reproducible:
Just Install on a new toshiba notebook an you will soon see ;)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put bootable Fedora CD disk 1 in.  (Have fun with the usb keyboard)
Actual results:
Can't use the keyboard

Expected results:
Can't type in anything

It seems keyboard can be unlocked by messing with it (my favourite
combo is LeftCtrl+LeftShift+LeftAlt pressed in a random way).
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-12-08 01:45:24 EST
any better with current updates / trees ?
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:32:41 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
