M$ natural keyboard pro problems


Hi there,

I'm new to this forum, so please apologize if I'm sending it to the wrong forum.

I'm running a Debian woody on my ACER laptop, using kernel 2.4.20. I've bought a M$ natural keyboard this weekend, and now I'm trying to install it. Unfortunately, unlike all websites telling me that this keyboard (using the USB-connection) should do fine, it doesn't work here. Yet, what seems bizarre is that during start-up, I does seem to work, but once the modules are being loaded, that's it, the animal is dead.


These are the modules I'm explicitly loading (/etc/modules):
af_packet
eepro100
i810_audio
hsfserial
input
mousedev
keybdev
usbcore
usb-uhci
hid
usb-storage
loop
ide-scsi
sr_mod
printer

At start-up, the system does recognize that I have a M$ Natural Keyboard connected, i.e. that's what it sais, but I still can't use it... neither under X, nor under plain tty's...

Does anybody have a clue?


Thx,
Fiikske

Okay,
in the meantime I found the solution, well, partial solution. Compiling all the relevant modules into the kernel, instead of loading them as modules, seems to do the trick.

Greetz,
Fiikske
