Re: Keyboard occasionally nonresponsive on bootup with Debian Sid

Hmm. I'm fairly certain the keyboard fails to work when I haven't

for the life of me think of what would make it occur only
occasionally, though.
My gut instinct is to declare, with a 98.625% confidence level, that
your keyboard/keyboard connector is flakey.

You may have missed the part where I said that I had this problem on two
different laptops.  I was certain it was hardware as well on the first
laptop (a Dell Latitude), but then I got a brand new IBM Thinkpad X40,
and the same behavior occurred immediately out of the box.  The Latitude
was nearly new as well.

Ah, yes, I did miss that.

 What is your confidence level that two brand new
laptops would both have the same keyboard/connector flakiness, that only
occurs after the bootloader is done, but not before?

I missed that as well.

My confidence level has dropped substantially now. Never mind.
