keyboard doesnt work at login mode


hi guys,
i got in an strange problem; suddenly i lost the keyboard, it doesnt works anymore. It happened while i was using firefox.

know, when i boot the machines, keyboard works at the grub time, but not at login time.

i have find out in google, that must be related it with a bad fedora update, but it does not, because i was working when the problem happened.

any idea, you guys; thanks in advance

hector

On a lot of systems, when you get to where you are entering the password, the keyboard will <i>appear</i> to not be working but it is actually taking the key input. Try entering the information anyway and see what happens

some guy says :

"But when the system was booted up, I could see the kernel in the /boot folder! So I came to the idea that something is screwed up with the external /boot and yeah, after removing /boot from /etc/fstab and reinstalling the kernels into the /boot folder of the root partition everything works fine"

He had a similar problem; does any body can describe "... after removing /boot from /etc/fstab and reinstalling the kernels into the /boot folder of the root partition..."

how to reinstall kernels ?
must i reboor after "removing /boot from /etc/fstab" ??

another idea ???

thank you guys

it looks like an slow keyboard function was activated by mistake; a combination of shift, ctrl and another key (not sure if block mayus) for more than 10 seconds has reactivated ... not sure but y got a very fast message about it.

it works know :-)
