keyboard doesn't work at the "Choose your Language" prompt on all liveCDs
When i boot to a Ubuntu liveCD 5.10 on my desktop PC
The keyboard work as the "Boot:" prompt,
but Does not work on the next "choose your language" screen.
i have tried "live failsafe safemode nolapic and noapic at the boot prompt with no luck,
the LiveCD boot media works on my laptop.
I have the same problem with damnsmalllinux, Knoppix 3.7 and 4.0.
About 6 month ago Knoppix 3.7 worked fine.
the keyboard and mouse is are have standard PS/2 plugs
I have an Asrock P4S61 motherboard
512MB ram and a 2 ghz Intel processor, no USB stuff.
Is there a BIOS Setting I can check?
Perhaps an exorcist?
Please help me...
Does the keyboard work if you enter a character (rather than the arrow keys) to make a selection ???.
Got a spare keyboard to test - else go beat up on a mate.
The characters work at the boot prompt.
The keyboard works on a test PC running fedora core 4,
and it works if i let the PC boot to XP.
I was suggesting an entry for language (i.e. try "e" for English).
Just more evidence really - I have no idea why you are seeing what you are.
entering "e" for english doesn't work.
I updated the BIOS from 2.00 to 2.50 and the keyboard is still not functioning.
Are Asrock motherboards not linux friendly?
Is there any parameters i can pass to Knoppix or Damnsmall linux in the boot prompt to make the keyboard work?
