Description Mario Lorenz 1999-10-10 22:27:23 UTC
kudzu, when started, either during the initscripts at boot
or manually, will lock up the keyboard of my notebook
(Smilebook 5100M, PII-233,64M Ram, Intel BX chipset - uhm,
I'm affraid I dont know much more about the hardware in
there that could relate to the problem) solid.
I get some keyboard timeout messages in the kernel logs, but
thats it. The installer, especially in text mode, seems to
be affected by this as well; at least I experienced said
keyboard hangs during a textmode setup.
rpm --erase kudzu solves the problem.
I personally can recommend that anyway; I wasn't too
impressed with the concept in general, neither with the
performance in particular when I added a new harddrive and a
new ethernet card to the system.
Unfortunately, the rpm --erase is not applicable to the
Anyway, since this problem is probably hardware specific, I
am not sure what to do about it. Unfortunately
I am currently a bit short of time, hence cannot look into
that myself. Any ideas ?

Out of curiousity, does the keyboard lock on your notebook
if you start up with gpm enabled?

Comment 2 Mario Lorenz 1999-10-11 16:26:59 UTC
No. I can run gpm just fine. Get a nice, moving mouse cursor.

Apologies for the lack of response; we have been completely
unable to duplicate this anywhere.

Does running mouseconfig, Xconfigurator, etc., cause
similar failures, or just kudzu?

Is there any particular point at which the installer
locks up the keyboard?
