    No Response from USB Keyboard (Mandrake 10.1)


    I just installed Mandrake 10.1 on an HP Pavilion 9780C. The keyboard worked through all of installation, but once I rebooted the keyboard not respond when attempting to login. The keyboard is usb, and the mouse is PS/2. The mouse works fine.

    Anyone know where I could start to look for fixing this problem?

    I would go here:

    http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/101beta.php3

    and read through known bugs and the such. If you don't find what you're looking for, submit a bug report.

    As a last resort, the folks over at #mandrake aren't the freindliest, but you might find someone willing to help.

    BTW... I run MDK 10.1 and have no problem with my USB keybaord.
    Good luck,

    I looked up the problem on google seems that loads of people had the same problem as me. so here is the solution for via chipsets who generates this kind of problem (installed on k7t266 pro 2 motherboard made by msi)
    edit your /etc/lilo.conf
    add to your linux boot options these:
    acpi=off noapic
    and then execute lilo -v
    reboot and you're mouse and usb keyboard should work fine
    daim chipsets...
    no guarantee that it will work for you though

    I inserted the line you specified, but when I execute lilo -v I receive the following error.

    "Unrecognized token "acpi" at or above line 9 in file '/etc/lilo.conf'"

    Any ideas what i'm going wrong?
