Thread: USB Kb and mouse

    USB Kb and mouse

    I just got a fancy usb kb and mouse, and I compiled usb support for input devices on my kernel, but my mouse does not work, and I get an error saying it couldn't find AT keyboard.
    What do I need to do to change from AT to USB?

    Got it working. I think I had a conflict between the AT modules and the usb ones. I took out the AT support for the mouse, changed XF86Config, and is working good. Only annoying thing is that, at the console, the first time I hit NumLock, I get a little message complaining about not finding an AT keyboard. But it goes away and the NumLock comes on.

    Orisha login: keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(ed)
    keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?(f4)

    If I disable usb emulation on the bios, I don't get the error. However, then I can't use the keyboard on the bootloader.

    Oh well.
