PS/2->USB converter doesn't work
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:25:42 EDT
Using 2.4.9-21 & 2.4.9-28.
I have an ATEN UC100KM PS/2->USB converter (plug in PS/2 mouse & keyboard, and
then plug the converter into the USB port.) It doesn't appear to work at all
It works under Windows XP, and in the BIOS (both on ia64 and x86); it does not
work in LILO or grub on the x86 box I tried it on.
I have tried both the HID keyboard and mouse drivers, and rebuilding the kernel
with usbkbd and usbmouse enabled; nothing seems to work. If I look at
/proc/interrupts, the USB controller only registers interrupts on device
plug/unplug; there appeear to be no interrupts generated when I press keys or
move the mouse.
Bill, check the patch linux-2.4.17-usb-55878.patch in kernel HEAD.
It may help, but on the other hand, usbkbd worked with that device
(when loaded in controlled environment,
echo /bin/true > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug)
I did not put it into pensacola or enigma-s390-erratum,
do you want it in there? Please test and let me know how
Also, if the patch does not fix the problem, attach your
dmesg and /proc/bus/usb/devices.
That patch worked for me ok. Cool, now we can get more machines in the rack
attached to the KVM.
I don't know that this *needs* to be an errata patch, but it would be nice if it
doesn't break other things. (famous last words)
I copied it into errata, so whatever goes after -21
should have it.
