I feel very lame not being able to find a tread that solves this problem already not because its not there (most likely it is)but because i cannot find the right thread. However i hope some nice guy can help...
Okay, here is the problem...you know this swaret thing? Yep! My linux box works like 98% efficient except that i have been trying to get microphone and speakers to obey me and not doing what they want. So i decided to "update the box". Well, afterwards when i run "startx" it tells me it cannot find the keyboard and the mouse moves in a quasi random mode.
Okay, i say to myself ...i got a bunch of flash card ports and micro drives that don't work anyway why don't i upgrade the kernel? I do that and it all seems okay when i compile but when i reboot the new kernel it runs (tries to boot) until it gets detecting the USB ports and finds 8(instead of 4, guess it considers the 2 firewire ports as a USB ports) and then stop there.
Now i got the following problems;
1. Swaret update kills the mouse and keyboard
2. Kernel 2.6.9 does not boot...stops at detecting USB ports.
What have i tried to fix this problems
made kernel smaller
They don't work.
So if you can help that would be really nice...
