This is what I have:
When I boot up, I can hit F2 to go into BIOS. When the
Minimal A64 2004.2 Gentoo LiveCD boots, I can enter boot
But after that, my keyboard stops working. It goes into the
Gentoo screen, but I can't type anything whatsoever. It's weird
because Num Lock is active on the keyboard, although I can't
disable it by hitting the Num Lock key, nor can I enable other
things like Caps Lock. And of course, none of the other keys
I thought that it might be a USB problem.
The USB options in my BIOS are:
Onboard USB - Enabled
USB2 Support - Enabled
USB Legacy Mode - Enabled
(When I didn't have USB Legacy Mode on, I couldn't even enter
I tried fiddling around with these options, but to no avail.
I have no idea what's the problem, so I asked around. A lot of people have suggested that it might be a bug (maybe incompatibility with the motherboard), so here I am.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just boot.
2. Couldn't type.
Known problem with <=2004.3. Will address this in 2005.0.
Got same problem with USB Keyboard and LiveCD 2004.3 but x86.
Abit AT7-Max2 + AMD AthlonXP 2200+ (Thorton).
2004.2 is unsupported for some time already.
