    USB Keyboard doesn't work


    I just installed Fedora and didn't have any problems in till I got into the OS. Here is my problem. The keyboard works fine in the bootloader but as soon as Linux is loaded the keyboard stops working. The mouse still works but I can't create users since the keyboard doesn't work.

    I tried changing BIOS settings from USB to BIOS for the keyboard with no improvement. I remember in Mandrake I had to disable APIC in order to get it to work. I'm not sure how to do that in Fedora.

    Any ideas on what I can do?

    Did you specifically tell Fedora during install that you didn't have a USB keyboard? That's the only reason I can think of that it would not be working after a default setup...
