Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193886
Cannot get past installer screens on rescue CD due to keyboard probs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:34 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to determine if the current rawhide (01-jun-06) will function on a
Intel MacBook I cannot get it to install because there are problems with the
keyboard (usb). The keyboard responds very slow, but when it responds it is
repeating the pressed, key making it unusable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rawhide rescue boot CD (01-jun-06)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot rescue CD through refit boot loader
2. start install with 'linux askmethod' (keyboard still usable)
3. Try to negiotiate the menu's
Can not get past the menu's because of slow keyboard respons and/or repeated keys.
Get the installer to start downloading and installing
Booting with: acpi=force irqpoll makes the keyboard usable again! Unfortunately
anaconda still does not like the GPT partition table :(
With the installer/rescue disk from 17-Jun-06 the keyboard problems are gone.
