    Startup


    I installed the gatos driver, though they didn't work, but now my keyboard won't work at all unless I do an interactive startup.

    Did you change ANYTHING else besides installing the gatos driver (new kernel, etc)?

    Not a damn thing. In fact, it happened after I installed the drivers. The directions said after installing to init 5, then check and see if it worked using the ol' glxinfo routine. Well, I never even got that far! I init 5'ed but lost my keyboard. After several restarts, I figured out the 'i' thing, and then my board worked. Tried several times both ways, normal and interactive, and it's the same everytime. Unless I do interactive, the keyboard won't work. It works in init 3 mode everytime, so I'm thinking it's somehow X related.
