Keyboard modprobe after boot process possible?
Amilo Pro V2040
Sometimes my keyboard hangs after boot process, touchpad works.
Is there a possibility to modprobe keyboard again or another solution?

First of all check dmesg or /var/log/messages for error messages and post them here. If this is a PS/2 keyboard, then the keyboard driver will be little chance to reload the keyboard driver, since it is built into the kernel. But since the touchpad works, I assume that there is some misconfiguration, because a typical touchpad is connected to the PS/2-AUX port. Does the keyboard even not work without X? If so there might be a hardware failure.

Thanks for your reply. I'll send the related part of dmesg if the boot fails again. It's nearly one of five.
After a reboot the keyboard works each time. The problem occurs since kernel 2.2x, with 2.18 all worked fine.
