    Server woes


    I am running my own DNS, Mail, and Web servers. They are Red Hat 9.0 without X or monitor, keyboard or mouse. Sometimes if i try to get on them localy, I plug in a monitor and keyboard and it won't see the key board. I then reboot and as the computer is coming up I can move with the keyboard but when it gets to the login part the keyboard dies. I didn't really care at my house because this is rare and by the 3rd reboot the keyboard would find its way back. BUT I was at a clients ISP last night and his ISP is running RH 9.0 servers too and the samething was happening and I couldn't get the keyboard to work at all..
    Has anybody else ran into this? Is there a fix or is it a bug in RED Hat? Was this fixed in Fedora or should I change the servers to DEBIAN or Slackware?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Have you checked the RH9.0 errata/bugs/mailing list for this problem? If it seems to be a RH9.0 problem, I'd suggest upgrading. At the very least, it should be fine after a kernel upgrade (newer sources).

    I haven't checked there but it sounds like you had. Any suggestions on the upgrade? Stick with Fedora or go do DEB or SLACK?

    I built a Fedora Core 3 webserver last night and it fixed the stupid keyboard issue I had with RH 9.0. I will test for speed and agility now.
