Not a zsh problem.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-06-06 12:43:14 EDT
Assigning to kernel - any ideas what this error means?
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2002-06-06 14:20:07 EDT
Means the keyboard controller locked up 8)

Please provide full hardware details, Also let us know if USB legacy support is
enabled in the BIOS

This error also happens for us.  We're using the 2.4.18-14BOOT kernel.  The 
machine does not have any P2/2 ports, and is solely USB.  The machine is a 
Compaq Evo D510 E-PC.  Please contact me directly if you need further 
information.

I'm seeing this error on a transient basis. The keyboard goes dead until I
restart X (by simply logging out of the current session using the mouse and
letting gdm bring X back up). Checking the logs shows:

pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x17).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x17).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x17).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x17).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x1D).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x17).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x17).
pc_keyb: controller jammed (0x1D).

I suspect this is probably a hardware problem. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
