Does a RHEL5.4 bare metal install boot correctly when this keyboard is plugged in?  And can we get console logs from the boot so we can see where the boot process hangs?

Comment 3 Perry Myers 2009-08-27 18:59:29 UTC
I successfully booted RHEVH 5.4- with a SK-8825 USB keyboard connected.  Not sure why the 8845 would be different enough from the 8825 to cause problems, but I would imagine if there is a problem it would also exist in RHEL5 and would not be isolated to RHEVH.

If this problem still exists please replicate and provide console logs.  I'm going to reassign to RHEL kernel and close.  Please reopen if you have more information.
