<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>

I downloaded fresh etch beta  install disk 3/15. 
checked md5sum. 
checked md5sum on burned copy by dd if=/dev/hdc bs=$blocksize count=$count 
conv=notrunc,noerror  |md5sum 
	a la url "coasterless cd burning with linux".
I booted into install. hit enter at prompt. it asked me for language. I hit 
enter and no response.
System does not recognize keyboard after boot into installer.

I think there is something wrong with debian kernel  2.6.15.


I have same trouble with this sytem when upgrading a fresh sarge install to 
I get frozen console with no keyboard or mouse activity. I can only ssh into 
the system. 
When i do dmesg |grep input I see only speaker and no keyboard or mouse 

Thus on this system I get failure of recognition of keyboard or mouse by 
debian linux-image  2.6.15.  

More detail:
I just did a fresh sarge install, desktop packages selected.  I upgrade to 
sid. (apt-get update ;apt-get dist-upgrade)
 with 2.6.8-2 kernel system works fine. (i dont bother to configure Xorg at 
this point, i  use console and disable gdm)
I then try to apt-get install linux-image-2.6.15-1-k7-smp (same problem with 
install of -k7 or -1-486 2.6.15 kernels too). 
The new kernel is installed, and then  when i reboot  - no response to 
keyboard or mouse.  I can ssh into system and it works fine. I do 

 dmesg|grep input
iput: PC Speaker as /class/input/input0

cat /proc/bus/input/devices 
I: Bus=0010 Vendor=001f Product=0001 Version=0100
N: Name="PC Speaker"
P: Phys=isa0061/input0
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input0
H: Handlers=kbd event0
B: EV=40001
B: SND=6

no keyboard or mouse

I now have same problem with new etch installer!

????It is a problem with the new debian kernel  or with udev.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from Etch which isn't supported
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.


Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,
