    6161USB keyboards attached to OHCI or to USB 2.0 hubs do not work in Kernel Debugging Land (KDL). They need to be connected to UHCI root ports to work in KDL. Also note that when entering the kernel debugger by means of a panic it is possible that the keyboard does not work. To work around this issue you can manually enter the kernel debugger once and leave it again to enable the USB keyboard.
     
    7676Support for localization/internationalization is still a work in progress. Some applications might only be partially translated and have issues with long strings in languages other than English.
    7777
    78 Firmware for some wireless network cards need user acknowledgement, prior to their intsallation. This includes Broadcom 43xx, Intel ipw2100, Intel ipw2200 and Marvell 88W8335. As a temporary measure, a script is included to assist in this process. (Available via `install-wifi-firmwares.sh`)
