    Timeout - AT keyboard not present


    I have a dell desktop connected to a iogear switch. I configured kernel 2.4.29 and booted through it. Once the server comes up though, I cannot use the keyboard or the mouse. I try to type on the keyboard but nothing happens.
    dmesg shows me
    keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(ed)
    keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(f4)

    When I boot through the 2.4.21-15 kernel, both the mouse and keyboard work fine. Can anyone tell me whats going on? this is the first time i am seeing this error.

    Thanks,
    Nik

    Did you compile the new kernel "from scratch"? If so, did you use your old config or start from the ground up? You may have just left out a needed module.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    You could try copying your old .config file from your old kernel source directory to your new kernel source directory and running
    Code:
    make oldconfig
