If you did disable it and that didn't fix it, then try hitting a key about every second during boot and see when it breaks. When I had that problem it was GPM that was loading last and my keyboard worked just fine until that module started and then I had nothing.
Originally posted by Cedrik Hey reaz82, why do you think it is a system config problem as you said that your keybord works with the bare.i kernel.
What is your output with :
cat /usr/src/linux-2.6.7/.config | grep -i key
i dont think it's a system config problem.. i mean i am not sure what you mean by that.. all i can tell for now is that it works with the packaged bare.i kernel but not with my custom kernel.. the bare.i kernel lacks a lot of other stuff which is why i compiled the kernel ..
the keyboad doesnt respond during boot.. it's not like it messes up after gpm.. it just doesnt respond at all when the compiled kernel is loading..
