Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201142
Keyboard repeats two characters for every keypress
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from todays rawhide boot.iso
2. at the boot prompt enter: linux text
3. Wait for anaconda to start
Anaconda starts, and every key press is registered twice.
Computer to accept a single keypress, as a .. single keypress.
Workaround is to boot with acpi=force noirqpoll
Kernel command line: initrd=initrd.img BOOT_IMAGE=vmlinuz acpi=force irqpoll
Does this still happen with a current rawhide boot.iso?
Happens with FC6 Final also.
Doesnt happen with RHEL 5, or current FC6 iso.
Confirmed it doesnt happen with FC7T1.
Guess this can be closed.
