No keyboard after install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
No keyboard during first-boot install dialogues.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on Thinkpad T41p laptop from rawhide boot.iso
2. Reboot into system after install
3. Try to type in name for "create user" dialogue
No response to keystrokes, although mouse works.
System responds to keystrokes.
Forcing the config dialogue to continue without creating a user
results in a seemingly hung system. Logging in is possible,
but killing the X server via "/sbin/telinit 3" results in not
getting the console back. Instead the X initialized screen
remains, a black background with the classic "X" mouse cursor.
The system seems to be otherwise find via remote ssh login.
Nothing strange appears to be in the xorg.conf file, for example
the keyboard section simply states:
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
I just hit the same problem on x86_64 with ATI Rage XL. So the problem seems
to be generic and not tied to system type nor graphics card or anything
Can you attach the X log file from an affected startup?
In the time it took for someone to look into this problem, I've
wiped those installations and installed yesterday's rawhide from
scratch and the problem no longer occurs. So I'll close this.
