Description James Laska 2006-07-11 15:18:44 EDT
# RPM kernel-2.6.17-1.2364.fc6
# SYSTEM Dell Precision 380

The mouse and keyboard work in the BIOS and grub ... but are not recognized by
the OS.  I can plug in a USB keyboard and that works.  The same behavior is
observed regardless of whether connected to a KVM or directly to keyboard+mouse.

The only input devices that show up in sysfs are:

# cat /sys/class/input/input*/name
PC Speaker

Compared to my laptop running the same kernel:

$ cat /sys/class/input/input*/name
AT Translated Set 2 keyboard
Logitech Logitech USB Keyboard
Logitech Logitech USB Keyboard
SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
PC Speaker
TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint
Logitech USB-PS/2 Mouse M-BA47

Please advise if there are any additional details I can grab to assist with
debugging.  I have attached dmesg on the failing system.

I hear about this happening from time to time, always with PE280.

However, there's a bug with a similar symptoms which is not hardware-specific.
Alan was working on it. Please see bug 176611.

I'm not seeing this on RHEL4 ... this only happens in FC6 and RHEL5
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 13:46:46 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
