USB Keyboard not working in fedora 8
Hi guys,
I've been using a USB keyboard since long on windows and I've recently migrated to linux.
I've recently purchased a new USB keyboard but it does not work on fedora. The lights on the keyboard glow for a second and then go off after with no number of keytaps does the trick.

Whats wrong here? Will I need to track down the keyboard's .inf files from windows and install them on linux using ndiswrapper? Or, is there a better and more permanent solution?

USB Keybord not working In Fedora 8
What kind of USB keyboard do you use ?
If it is wireless keyboard used on two operating system it is sometimes
necessary to push the connect button on both operating system to get working on both , only once off course because it possible the transmission is different on both system

all the best

I'm using a PS/2 Keyboard via a PS/2 USB converter.
