Subject: [gentoo-bsd] Gentoo-freebsd - can't login with keyboard
> I've just installed gentoo-fbsd according to the docs. I've downloaded
> the latest version including the 6.1 kernel, which I compiled by hand.
> After much fooling around I've manged to get it booting. However, when I
> get to the login prompt at the end of the boot process, nothing happens
> when I type characters at the keyboard. The keyboard input seems to work
> during the bootup process.
> I've had similar problems with fbsd in the past - usually when xdm/kdm is
> started with a script. I suspect this is a similar problem but I can't
> pinpoint it.
> I've already posted a question on the forums but I haven't had many views
> and no answers. Please forgive me for double posting!
> P.S. I had a lot of difficulty mounting my new root partition read-write
> using freesbie. Maybe the doc should point out that you can fix this by
> running fsck on the root partition first.
