.config file used to compile 2.6.15-gentoo-r5
I have 2 machines running kernel 2.6.14-gentoo-r5 and 2.6.13-gentoo-r5. I have tried on both machines to upgrade to kernel 2.6.15-gentoo-r1 and 2.6.15-gentoo-r5 but keyboard and mouse isn't working after boot. The funny part is that keyboard is working in boot manager grub. I have looked in all log files but I can find nothing interessting.
The keyboard and mouse is a "logitech cordless desktop pro" attached through a switchbox "miniview" switch. The keyboard is conntected to the switch with a usb->ps2 converter.
The hardware setup is working with "old" kernel
I can still SSH to both machines and keyboard works there.
As said, we need dmesg output. Attach /var/log/dmesg here. Also, does it work when connected directly? (Dunno what's switchbox "miniview" switch either).

Have tried to connected directly - keyboard both with USB and with USB->PS/2 converter. Still not working.

This one is working perfectly

So - do you have usbhid module loaded? Seems not, kernel doesn't detect any mouse or keyboard at all. (Or try to compile the driver into kernel, not as a module.)
I have tried USB both as module and build into kernel. But does the kernel see the keyboard as a USB keyboard when using a usb->PS/2 converter?

Kernel doesn't see your mouse and keyboard at all (neither PS2 or USB). I still don't understand that miniswitch stuff, also you said it doesn't work even without the PS2 converter, when plugged in directly into USB port (that's why I asked about the module.)
Passing this to kernel devs.
Miniview SE is a 4 port mouse and keyboard switch

Please apply both of those patches (#1 then #2) to 2.6.15 and retest. Ensure that all required USB support (EHCI, OHCI, UHCI and HID) is built into the kernel (not as modules).
If the problem still exists, plug the keyboard directly into the USB port of the system, boot it up, login via ssh and obtain a dmesg log for that session.
Thx - I will test it monday and report back if it worked or not.

Dmseg when using USB->PS2 converter
Have tried with both pacthes applied with mixed result. The "cordless mouse and keyboard reciver" from logitech comes with a PS/2 connector used by the mouse and a USB connector for the keyboard - but also with a USB->PS/2 converter so the keyboard can be used as a PS/2 keyboard.In all 3 boot situations the mouse is connected through PS/2.
1. I connect the keyboard as USB the patchs works /Cheer!!
2. I connect the keyboard through the USB->PS/2 neigther the mouse or keyboard works.
3. I use the swithbox (witch also demands the PS/2 converter) neighter the mouse or keyboard works.
I have attaced the dmseg message from boot situation nr 2.
Thanks for testing that. Can you also post dmesg output from 2.6.14 where the keyboard is connected directly through the USB->PS/2 converter to the PS/2 port?

Dmesg when connected with USB->PS/2 converter directly
Thanks. Final bit of info we need before we can pass this onto the input developers: can you please test the latest development kernel (currently 2.6.16-rc4)? No need to patch anything in there. I'm only interested in the behaviour with the uSB->PS2 adapter at this point - please get another dmesg dump.

Dmesg with vanilla-kernel 2.6.16-r4
I used vanilla kernel - hope that is the right one. Unfortunally didn't neighter the keyboard or mouse work.
Please file an input bug for this at http://bugzilla.kernel.org. Keep it simple and stick to the non-working case, i.e. you should report:
- you connect directly to ps/2 with the converter
- 2.6.14 worked, 2.6.15 doesnt, 2.6.16-rc4 doesnt
You should post dmesg output from 2.6.14 and 2.6.16-rc1 (i.e. comment #22 and comment #24).
You should also emerge dmidecode and post the output from running "dmidecode".
When you have opened the new bug, please post the new URL here.
Problem solved - I updated the bios on my motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-K8NMF-9 from version F4 to F9 and now everything works - why it helped I have no idea about.

Thx for the help :-)
Ok, thanks for letting us know.
