well i'm in a slight dilema, neither my mouse or keyboard work when i'm trying to log into red hat 9.
I'm having the same problem, but I'm using Fedora Core 1 with the latest updates. Everything was working fine and I was going to check some log files (after three-four hours of uptime) and I noticed that the keyboard (standard PS/2) had stopped working, just like that, while the system was still online. I couldn't figure it out so rebooted and hoped that it would resolve the problem but no. Keyboard is working fine in BIOS setup (and in Windows XP) but it refuses to work when I am prompted to login to Linux. The thing is that I have rebooted at least twice since I did my last "yum update" and I have had no problems at all earlier, and all of a sudden this happens. STRANGE!
Any help would be appreciated!
EDIT: Issue solved! I stepped thorough the interactive startup and found that the GPM, (console mouse driver) was causing the trouble.
