No keyboard input on SUSE 10.1
I'm very new to the Linux world. I had been running for about 3 weeks, learning and reading about it when I encountered this major roadblock which I hope it would be simple to fix.
During login, I can not use my keyboard to enter name/pwd.
Facts so far:
The mouse/keyboard HW works since I was able to boot up in runlevel 3. Since I have Samba running, I can remotely log into my Linux box, but not the locally.
Last activity before it died:
I have a local printer on my Windows XP-pro PC which I shared its services. My Linux box was using this shared resource. I was loading some new software on the Windows and had to reboot it. While the Windows was booting, I was on the Linux box attempting to print a document. The print q-spooler received several jobs pending.
After Windows returned from the boot, the print jobs did not get processed. When I reboot the Linux box, I came into the situation that I'm now...no keyboard.
I was able to log in remotely and delete the pending print jobs. I tried to change from runlevel 5 to 3 and back to 5. no luck here.
Can anyone please provide me with with an answer to this problem or a direction to go, so that I may continue to use my Linux box ?
Thanks in advance.
