#17800 new bug

Mouse & Keyboard sometimes do not work after booting

Description (last modified by davidrg)

Hardware is an HP nc6400 laptop currently running hrev55430 but this behaviour existed on beta3 as well.

After reaching the desktop the mouse is unresponsive for several seconds. Trying to use the mouse during this period seems to increase the chance of this problem occurring but I can't reliably reproduce the issue so I can't say for sure if this is the case.

It only affects the mouse and keyboard - the system is otherwise working fine. Pressing the power button does a clean shutdown, and I can SSH in ok which is how I was able to grab a copy of syslog.

Relevant lines from syslog are probably:

KERN: ps2: reset failed
KERN: ps2: devfs_publish_device input/mouse/ps2/1, status = 0xffffffff
KERN: ps2: reset failed
KERN: ps2: devfs_publish_device input/mouse/ps2/2, status = 0xffffffff
KERN: register_domain(9, unix)
KERN: ps2: reset failed
KERN: ps2: devfs_publish_device input/mouse/ps2/3, status = 0xffffffff
KERN: ps2: devfs_publish_device input/keyboard/at/0, status = 0x00000000
KERN: ps2: keyboard reset failed, status 0x80000009, data 0x00
KERN: ps2: keyboard probing failed
KERN: KeyboardDevice: error when opening /dev/input/keyboard/at/0: No error
KERN: ps2: devfs_unpublish_device input/keyboard/at/0, status = 0x00000000

Linux detects the mouse as:

[    3.115857] psmouse serio4: synaptics: Touchpad model: 1, fw: 6.2, id: 0x2580b1, caps: 0xa04793/0x300000/0x0/0x0, board id: 0, fw id: 240405

I seem to experience a similar (but not quite) problem on ASUS A513EA-BQ2409 laptop using hrev56776 (though the problem was there before beta4). Sometimes it takes one or several reboots for the keyboard to start working, sometimes it works right away. USB mouse always functions well, while the touchpad never works (it lacks drivers, afaik). Syslog for a boot without the keyboard functioning attached, as well as listdev output.
