My keyboard is a HH one too; I'll try this
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-05 09:54:07 EST
Interesting; I'm now using 2.4.18-0.13 and my HH usb keyboard just works.
Pete: any idea what could be going on ?
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2002-04-05 13:15:48 EST
Leaving Arjan on cc: because he has the hardware.

It's not a problem with the keyboard as such, but with a hub
(which may be built into the keyboard).
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-05 13:24:13 EST
HH keyboards have an "on board" hub and 2 outputs
Comment 7 Pete Zaitcev 2002-04-05 13:30:25 EST
Thanks for the logs; Now I would like to see contents of
/proc/bus/usb/devices and /proc/modules for a working kernel.
Non-working may be interesting too (to see what's missing).

I can confirm that 2.4.18-0.13 just works.

I hate bugs that automatically fix themselves ;(
