DragonFly bugs List (threaded) for 2004-12
Re: keyboard loss in DF
: I too am seeing this behavior. Jeroen has asked that I post a "me too".
: I've installed the dfly-20041107-stable.iso on my old junker test box.
:The mobo is an old Asus PI55T2P4 rev 3 which uses the Intel 430HX chipset.
:atkbdc0: <Keyboard controller (i8042)> at port 0x60,0x64 on isa0
:atkbd0: <AT Keyboard> flags 0x1 irq 1 on atkbdc0
:kbd0 at atkbd0
:installed MI handler for int 1
:The install went flawlessly. However, the keyboard stops working without any
:clue as to rhyme or reason. Sometimes it will fail at the login prompt
:requiring 5-6 reboots or so before it returns. Other times it will work
:fine for as long as 30 minutes before failing. I been through all the logs
:and see no error messages.
:Enabling inetd allows me to telnet in to the box. Everything seems to be
:running fine when I do this. If I turn ssh on it works fine too.
:I am a sysadmin at work in a mostly Windows environment. While I have played
:around with a little coding over the years I do not consider myself a
:programmer by any means, much less a kernel hacker. To set up the telnet
:session is not too hard but I wouldn't know what to do with the ddb/gdb
:debugging stuff. I do have a null modem serial cable which I have used for
:SLIP before. It looks like the only way to cvsup and get box up to
:-current/head would be to do it remotely. Even though it is somewhat a pain
:in the ass I could do it if someone thinks it may help. If the box Jeroen
:has the problem and the box is -current/head I don't think this will help.
:However, if there is something a non kernel hacker such as myself can do to
:help solve the problem I am willing.

I'm thinking we broke something, this keyboard problem sounds more
widespread then would be usual for a hardware issue.
If possible could you try some older kernels? There are older kernel
images (just the kernel, not the whole ISO) available for download.
Try going back a month or two and see if the problem is still there,
then try going back even further.
