keyboard problem with smp
I've just received a shiny new 3ghz Pentium 4 (to my delight).
Everything works great with the standard 2.7.6-1-686 kernel I have been
using. I also want to do some testing with the SMP kernel for the
My problem is, when I boot the 2.7.6-1-686-smp kernel, my keyboard does
not work. It is a regular PS/2 keyboard, not USB. The system does work,
and detects the "2 processors". When I get to Gnome I can painfully
tinker around with dasher or the onscreen keyboard. The keyboard is also
disabled if I boot to runlevel 1.
Is there a module I should be loading? I could look for some specific
problem, but it is slow work to do much investigating. Fortunately this
is not urgent, as I can fallback on the non-smp kernel. The motherboard
uses an intel chipset, if that helps.
Any thoughts? Thanks. It's been a long time since I built my own kernel.
I have been so pleased with the debian binaries.
