<br>Using a 2.4 series kernel, it is not possible to use a USB keyboard on serial-keyboard sparc as the system keyboard.&nbsp; Everything will seem to work (dmesg, event* nodes) but it just won't take the place of the system keyboard.
<br><br>The easiest solution is to use a 2.6 series kernel.<br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 12/11/06, <b class="gmail_sendername">张�|武</b> &lt;<a href="mailto:zhangweiwu@...">zhangweiwu@...</a>&gt; wrote:
