help: keyboard doesn't work after upgrade XFree86


hi,

i've having problem with my keyboard after upgrading to XFree86-4.4.0 last nite. i upgraded X windows to work with the new ATI graphics driver i downloaded the other day (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=243227). it seems ok after the X windows binaries installed, but at mandrake graphics login screen, i couldn't type in my password to log into X-windows, Caps Lock key doesn't work either. keyboard simply gives up.

here's what the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and /var/log/XFree86.0.log look alike, can someone tell me how to fix the keyboard problem? i'm having a ATI Rage Pro card.

TIA,

It is unlikely that this is a keyboard problem.

Rather your system is freezing up in loading X.

Start by trying to specify kernel parameters to find the cause.

nolapic is one of the most common ones needed by motherboards.

However if this gives you the same results, try

noapm
noacpi
nopcmcia
nousb
noagp

in this order until you find which one cures the problem.

hmm, interesting...

but i doubt it has anything to do with nolapic etc

the first thing i noticed the line approcaching the end of /var/log/XFree86.0.log

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
(EE) Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap
(II) Server_Terminate keybinding not found

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

at the mandrake graphics login screen, if i typed in the password fast enough, x windows would load, mouse works fine, but no keyboard response. if i wait for a while at graphics login screen, a black line appears across the middle of the screen and i couldn't type in any password, although mouse movement still can manipulate the user selection/boot/halt operations.

also, i discovered if i changed the runlevel to 3 from its original value 5 in /etc/inittab, then i can boot into x windows without any keyboard issues, but but the sound is out of whack when i have quake 3 or mp3 running. when i exit from X, i got these additional line displayed on screen

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

currenly, my kernel boot parameters looks like this:
'devfs=mount resume=/dev/hdb5 acpi=ht splash=silent nolapic'


i'm running kernel 2.6.3-7mdk, with XFree86 4.40 on a ATI Rage Pro card

That error is inconsequential.

It has NOTHING to do with the keyboard freeze.

Humor me and try what I told you.

A couple of my laptops produced exactly the same results you are seeing (BTW: ATI video too!) until I did this.

fine

i login as 'root' and append my boot parameters as suggested, in this order:

'devfs=mount resume=/dev/hdb5 acpi=ht splash=silent nolapic'
'devfs=mount resume=/dev/hdb5 acpi=ht splash=silent noapm'
'devfs=mount resume=/dev/hdb5 acpi=ht splash=silent noacpi'

still no success yet, will try the rest later on...

Not I.

I've been working with Linux for close to 8 years now. And unix for far more than that.

Sorry.

Anyway, there seems to be some problem with the interaction of the AGP driver and some of the other kernel level motherboard resouce handling modules.

nolapic is frequently a cure for the problem you are seeing.

Apparently this came up after the kernel added additional motherboard level support.

ATI video systems seem to exacerbate the problem.

Mandrake actually documented this in the 9.2 errata.

However on a couple of machines I've installed Linux on, this has happened with many different distributions including LiveCD based ones.

On those machines either they will freeze during boot, or I get EXACTLY the same problem you are seeing. I also saw the same keyboard error message which led me to the same conclusion as you.

I tracked down the latter only to find that this deal with extended multimedia buttons on keyboards and was not required and not to blame.

To make these machines work I end up trying different combinations of parameters at boot time (it IS possible to manually specify them by hitting tab at the boot screen...) and then typing something like

linux nolapic noagp nopcmcia

etc.

Once I have things running I went back and tried again specifying one less arguement until the system gave me the same problem again.

This way I could narrow it down to the offending module.

Now it's varied for me from machine to machine.

In one I had to specify "nousb" on another "nolapic" or "nopcmcia" on one desktop system.

After I found the cause I was able to add the arguement to /etc/lilo.conf and forget about the problem.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

hi, i don't know how to do that tab editing thing, i have a graphical lilo login screen, default boot option is linux, i hit 'tab' on my keyboard, nothing happened.

so i manually added the following to the linux drakboot append line,
'nolapic noapic nousb noagp nopcmcia noapm noacpi' and reboot after set runlevel to '5', well, my keyboard still hangs at login screen

i intended to upgrade the graphics driver to get better performance, but it turns out to be a bigger task ( i upgraded XFree86 to 4.40 to satisfy the graphics driver), and it ends in an annoying situation, plus, i didn't notice any significant improvement on the graphics, either from quake 3 or other applications like mplayerf. now i just want to go back my original settings, is there a way to remove the ATI rage pro driver i installed over the weekend?

i don't think there's a thing called 'last good configuration' available in linux, yes?

The easiest thing to do is to start up the machine in FB mode or any mode that drops you to the console prompt (not the gui!).

Then mount the DVD or CDROM and go to the directory containing the ATI driver RPM's from the original install.

Finally

rpm -Uvh --force ATIXXXXmdk.i586.rpm

using whatever rpm's are applicable.

This should reinstall the old driver.

Then backup/rename the corresponding configuration file in /etc/X11/ and run XFDrake to configure things again.

The packages are called ATI_kernel-2.x.x*.* and ATI_Glx*.* and ATI_GLX-utils*.*

I found them on the \Drivers directori of my Mandrake 10.0 DVD release.

hmm, i still don't see those files on the CDs, maybe they aren't made available for download version of mandrake.

seems i'm stuck with this problem

anyway, thanks for answering my question, i'll go back to windows before this can be fixed

hi,

does anyone know how to uninstall XFree86-4.4.0 package from my pc?

the upgrade causes all sorts of problems and i wonder if i could rollback to my previous state without having to reinstall the whole thing.

rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep XFree `

Exactly as displayed above.
