usb keyboard error

Hi all,

I am using an external USB keyboard to my laptop. Suddenly (after using this keyboard for 6 months), some randomly times i need to press the button 6-7 times before something appears on screen. This happens randomly, I may be able to type a whole paragraph without problem, and suddenly I can’t type anymore for few seconds.

My system is opensuse 11.3 and it happened last friday 9/10 ( if it is related to any update).

I tested the keyboard to another pc and it is working. I tested another keyboard to my laptop and I still have the same problem.
Any ideas?

There are reported problems with a kernel update and USB keyboard issues. Look at the following link for more details on a fix.

Keyboard & mouse freezes

Thank You,
