RE: Fedora Core 1.0, kernel-2.6.0-0 & PS2 keyboard problem

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have also had similar problems using 2.6.0-1.21 but only when using the
smp kernel.  I managed to get loaded by setting pci=noacpi in the kernel
2.6.0 test 9 is ok with smp but with smp -1.21 I lose the kb and mouse and
with smp -1.104 I get a kernel panic at about the stage where it detects the
serial io.
All the up versions load ok
My hardware is MSI MOB with dual PIII and a Dell kbd

I'd welcome a clue about how to get diagnostics from the kernel panic

any relevant msgs in dmesg output ?
As you're not averse to building your own kernels, you could try flipping
the debug switch on in drivers/input/serio/i8042.c (line 42, just
s/undef/define/) That should produce a slew of output as it detects the
keyboard/mouse and when you hit/release a key.  If it actually does spew
output, then this could be one of the corner cases the new input core
doesn't handle yet (keyboard handling was completely rewritten, and some
keyboards don't quite follow the specs it seems), in which case, the
maintainer of this code ([email protected]) would probably like to hear about
