The keyboard problem is a config problem as well. Either you enabled

So the problem is really with the real time clock, or with the
Cuda driver. It works fine on the 8500 I have here (approximately

CONFIG_PPC_RTC ? That will prevent sync'ing the clock but should
allow it to boot.
Also, is your kernel compile with CONFIG_SMP ? (I beleive it isn't
