Hello, When in yaboot, try this: type the label of the kernel to boot (eg. linux), followed by a space and the argument "keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1". Example, you type: linux2418xfs keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1 Greets, Olivier - -- ________________________________________________ Olivier Reisch doctomoe@××××××.org TuxPPC Site Director http://www.tuxppc.org The number one user resource for Linux on PPC.
