I was in the middle of writing a document in Open Office when I suddenly discovered the keyboard stopped working. No key lock, nothing. The mouse worked so I logged out to reset the X server. I could log in with GDM but once logged in, no keyboard.
Hmm, bizzare, so I rebooted...
The keyboard works in the BIOS
The keyboard works in GDM allowing me to log in
Once logged in the keyboard doesn't work!
I even tried to do a full power cycle.
Ok, I tried the previous kernel, same thing.
I'm in XP now and the keyboard works just fine.
This one has me truly stumped. I even ssh'd in from another machine and checked dmesg and there was no clue at all what could be happening. I know I did a yum update earlier in the day but the keyboard worked for hours after the update then suddenly stopped working in the middle of typing. It DOES work BEFORE logging but once logged in nada.
