So I have installed a new version of linux, Manjaro, on a new computer which has an SSD as hard drive. I followed the suggested tips from the following page:

http://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/In...D_(quick_guide)

Once the install was completed everything went swimmingly and I performed the standard system update and the new kernel install, 3.4.25, installed correctly and again everything went ok.

My issue is, I have now installed linux 3.7 and when dropped to the shell to enter my passphrase for the cryptsetup solution followed, the keyboard appears unresponsive :(

Obviously the cursor does not move while typing the phrase but in the 3.4.X versions when pressing the enter key the cursor moves to the next line.

In 3.7 it neither moves to another line nor does it give me any errors.

Would anyone be able to point me in the correct direction on a solution here?

Should you require any further details, please ask :)

So some more information, it seems the keyboard goes unresponsive the moment the request for the passphrase is presented, but again this only happens for the 3.7 kernel.
