No USB-Keyboard after Upgrade from MDK9.2 to MDK10
After Upgrading my Mandrake OS from version 9.2 to 10.0 Official, my USB-Keyboard doesn't work anymore after booting (the USB-Scanner doesn't either).
But after pluging in a PS2-Keyboard and immediately removing it, the USB-Keboard works.

Someone told me to get a list of the loaded modules before and after pluging in the PS2-Keyboard, so I got a list with lsmod. After pluging in the PS2-Keyboard the module evdev has been loaded (the other modules are the same).
So I loaded that module after booting with modprobe evdev - insmod evdev didn't work. But after loading the USB-Keyboard still didn't work.

I appreciate any help.

just out of curiosity, what chipset is your motherboard?

I've had the same issue (well, not with usb keyboard, but with usb mouse), and it appears that mandrake 10 has problems with certain chipsets and acpi power management.

The trick is to check the box "force no acip" in the Boot section of Mandrake Control Centre.

If that doesn't work, try editing your modules.conf and modprobe.conf (both in /etc) and change usb-uhci to uhci-hcd.

hope this helps.

thanks for your answer. I already formated my system's partition and installed mdk9.2 again. maybe I'll try it again with your tip.

I have no idea what chipset my motherboard has. how can I find out?

It'll usually say which chipset your motherboard is in the manual (main ones I can think of are VIA, SiS and nvidia). Mine is a VIA chipset, and just checking that "force no apci" option would work (didn't have to change the usb-uhci to uhci-hcd, although both work).

I'm having a working MDK10.0 Official now :D

Thanks a lot!

Sorry, but I still haven't found out which chipset my motherboard has.
