Description Wade Mealing 2006-08-03 06:20:12 UTC
Description of problem:

After booting from todays rawhide boot.iso, each keypress, (a-z, backspace,
enter, fN keys) registered in a double press. This was only applicable to linux,
as it worked fine in the syslinux boot loader.

Seemed to behave this way in the terminals, not just anaconda.  This may not be
the correct place to assign it, but I figured it is the place to start as kernel
parameters fixed it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.17-1.2505.fc6

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from todays rawhide boot.iso
2. at the boot prompt enter: linux text
3. Wait for anaconda to start
Actual results:

Anaconda starts, and every key press is registered twice.

Expected results:

Computer to accept a single keypress, as a .. single keypress.

Additional info:

Workaround is to boot with acpi=force noirqpoll

Comment 1 Wade Mealing 2006-08-03 06:29:38 UTC
Kernel command line: initrd=initrd.img BOOT_IMAGE=vmlinuz acpi=force irqpoll

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2006-08-23 05:00:26 UTC
Does this still happen with a current rawhide boot.iso?

Comment 3 Wade Mealing 2006-10-25 02:17:46 UTC

Happens with FC6 Final also.

Comment 4 Wade Mealing 2007-01-24 13:02:04 UTC
Doesnt happen with RHEL 5, or current FC6 iso.

Comment 5 Wade Mealing 2007-02-20 01:24:27 UTC
Confirmed it doesnt happen with FC7T1.

Guess this can be closed.
