Strange Kernel Keyboard Problem
Good evening everyone:
I'm having a strange kernel compile problem using Slackware 10 and my Linux from Scratch system.
Anyways, in each system I was planning to re/compile linux kernel 2.4.26. Initially, I decide to use the current config file from Slackware. It compiled successfully and symlinked the kernel and system.map file and rebooted the system.
On the LFS and Slackware system, I get this error:
timeout - at keyboard not present (ed?)
The weird thing is that the keyboard works on slackware despite this error, but doesn't work on my LFS system.
Another thing I find funny is that when I use a slackware cd to boot into LFS using the bare.i kernel:
boot: bare.i root=/dev/hda2 noinitrd ro
the keyboard works once the login prompt appears.
I initially thought it was a kernel compile problem, but the things that worked/don't worked - boot kernel causes keyboard to work; identical recompile produces timeout message on both, but doesn't work on LFS - is causing me to question that it might be something else.
It might also help that I am using a Toshiba A75-S209.
If anyone can help me out here, it will be appreciated.
