Description Alan Cox 2003-02-09 20:39:45 UTC
After I hit this on one box I went and tried several. On two of my systems the
ps/2 mouse probe kudzu/anaconda runs kills the keyboard dead. This is actually
quite obnoxious because the installer as no "nomouse" "nops2" "nomouseprobe"
option, and it also bites you if you remove the PS/2 mouse some time and then

With 8.0 I didn't see these problems, although there was a different one with
the kernel which broke keyboards during boot. That kernel one is not the one I
am seeing now. The keyboard works until the mouse probe in the installer or into
probing hardware.

Bill fixed this post-beta4 in kudzu

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-10 22:25:28 UTC
This *should* work with the pre-beta5 tree, FWIW.

so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
