Hello everyone! I’m new to the world of linux and I need help with this issue that I am having.
I’m running openSuse 11 x64 and for some reason my PS2 keyboard does not work at all in the login screen. I get no input whatsoever and the numpad/capslock/scrolllock lights only switch on when I connect the keyboard to the computer. It works fine when I go to into failsafe mode with every key working just as it would previously before this issue came up.
I’ve searched for quite a bit regarding this issue but nothing worked for me. Some places had recommendations like changing things in files in places like
but I don’t even have that folder in the X11 directory. I only have the xorg.conf folder.
Another place recommended something like this:
# This is here to serve as a note to myself, and future developers. # # Any Display manager (gdm,kdm,xdm) has the following problem: if # it is started before any getty, and no vt is specified, it will # usually run on vt2. When the getty on vt2 then starts, and the # DM is already started, the getty will take control of the keyboard, # leaving us with a "dead" keyboard. # # Resolution: add the following line to /etc/inittab # # x:a:once:/etc/X11/startDM.sh # # and have /etc/X11/startDM.sh start the DM in daemon mode if # a lock is present (with the info of what DM should be started), # else just fall through. # # How this basically works, is the "a" runlevel is a additional # runlevel that you can use to fork processes with init, but the # runlevel never gets changed to this runlevel. Along with the "a" # runlevel, the "once" key word means that startDM.sh will only be # run when we specify it to run, thus eliminating respawning # startDM.sh when "xdm" is not added to the default runlevel, as was # done previously. # # This script then just calls "telinit a", and init will run # /etc/X11/startDM.sh after the current runlevel completes (this # script should only be added to the actual runlevel the user is # using).
I looked at a couple other things but I don’t have the startDM.sh stuff either.
I’m running openSuse 11 x64 on an HP Proliant DL380 G5.
Thanks in advance!
