#829 closed bug (fixed)

Mouse and keyboard fail to work if USB legacy mouse support is activated

A problem mentioned on the mailing list (, I can't seem to think that mine is related.

Mouse input and keyboard input only work in rare exceptions (the mails mention 1 in 20, but that seems like a random number). The system is not frozen, since the clock keeps running. I discovered that when I disable USB legacy mouse support in my BIOS, there are no issues and both mouse and keyboard works (even though keyboard legacy support is enabled).

The type of hardware (PS2 or USB) doesn't matter, it works with neither.

I've attached a syslog.

Unfortunately, it's not. Perhaps it has something to do with the USB legacy emulation. I don't know exactly how it works, but I imagine that the BIOs presents another PS2 interface. Perhaps it fails because the driver fails to open the actual PS2 controller.

If you need a new syslog, please ask.

The bug shown in the original syslog should be fixed. Please provide a new one, with release 18694 or above.

With the current revisions (around 18900) it seems to be resolved.

Strange, all my problems seem to go away.
