Linux Progress Patch problems
I've successfully applied the LPP before. But this time around it
isn't working for me. The symptom is that I see the Debian graphical
screen at bootup, but it freezes with no progress indicated and with
two LED's on my Microsoft keyboard flashing.
To get more info I removed the redirection of console messages to
tty2 in lilo.conf, and saw the kernel panic info the next time I
rebooted. The last couple of lines are:
<0> Kernel panic
<4> keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present? (00)
So it's not finding my keyboard! If I change to a non-framebuffer
boot, e.g. vga=0x30C, everything's fine. Why would my keyboard be
flaking out in the one case, and not in the other.
It may be simply a badly applied patch. I may have had one hunk that
needed to work slightly harder to get applied. But there were no
Patches (in application order): Win4Lin (mki and kernel), low
Hardware: P4, ASUS/SiS mb, MS Natural Keyboard Pro (PS/2 port),
Nvidia GForce 2 video card, MS USB mouse, Advansys SCSI,
onboard audio and LAN.
Kernel build tool: make-kpkg
I followed the README and updated rc, rcS, inittab, lilo.conf as per
the instructions. Note that I only have problems when booting
Anyone else seen this? Any suggestions?
