Linux Progress Patch freezes - Help needed
No response the first time. Reposting...
I've successfully applied the LPP kernel patch before. But this time
around it isn't working. I do see the Debian graphical screen at
bootup. But it's immediately frozen with no progress indicated and
two LED's flashing on my Microsoft keyboard. When I forced console
messages back to tty1 I saw the following kernel panic:
<0> Kernel panic
<4> keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present? (00)
It's not finding my keyboard! If I change to a non-framebuffer boot,
e.g. vga=0x30C, everything's fine. Why would the keyboard be failing
when using the framebuffer and be ok otherwise?
There is a chance it's a badly applied patch. I vaguely remember one
hunk that needed to work slightly harder to get applied when running
patch. There were no patch errors.
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. Remember that I only have problems when booting
Anyone else seen this? Any suggestions?
