Hello. My Gentoo Linux runs on UltraSparc U5 can detect and recognise
USB Mouse, and can create correct /dev/input/event0 device. Everything
look fine except that the keyboard doesn't work. Press any key no
response, press Number Lock would not turn on the number lock LED.
I have to use USB Keyboard because the original Sun keyboard is broken
and it's hard to find a replacement in China. USB Keyboard is plugged on
PCI USB card.
What I have tried to solve this:
I. disable CONFIG_PROM_CONSOLE and enable all ATI framebuffer
drivers (My Card is ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro 215GP) =>
II. Replace USB Keyboard with different brand and different model =>

Has anyone get their USB Keyboard working?
