    keyboard problems


    I installed a dual boot machine. Xp and Linux 9. I used a ps2 mouse and keyboard to set it up. All went well. Now when I try to log in to linux it sets up a usb keyboard and I have no keyboard. Both the mouse and keyboard work fine in Windows. I'm new to linux and wondered how to edit the boot so that it will look for the proper keyboard.

    if you have a usb keyboard did you make sure before the installation that it is supported?although you maybe have to go to /usr/src/linux-version and run xconfig to load usb modules.in order to do that should put another keyboard using ps port.you may also try xf86config as root by running this at command prompt.

    I had a ps2 keyboard. I ended up purchasing a usb keyboard and it works fine now. I am curious as to why it decided that it wanted a usb keyboard when I did the install with a ps2 one.
