We installed Fedora Core on a Pentium M w/ integrated graphics and a PS/2 mouse and a PS/2 keyboard. The installation went fine and we installed the "Everything" package option. The system rebooted, we chose the monitor and set the resolution. Clicked the next button, the screen went blank and the computer hung.
Rebooted the computer. Fedora started loading, all services started with "OKs". Graphical interface came up and continued to load services. After the HAL daemon was loaded, the screen went blank and the system hung. At this point the keyboard and mouse were disabled. From other posts, we suspected a problem with XWindows and the video card.
Rebooted the computer and deleted the "rgdb" parameter in the GRUB bootloader. Fedora started loading, all services started with "OKs" and the log in prompt came up. However, the keyboard (and I presume the mouse) are disabled. You can't type, turn on NumLock or CapsLock. Only solution was to flip the power switch and reboot. Experimentation showed that the keyboard responded until right before the log in prompt came up.
Rebooted the computer and added the "single" parameter in the GRUB bootloader. This time, when the prompt came up, the keyboard worked just fine. Unfortunatley, we need it to work in multi-user mode for the intended application.
Is there a configuration option that diables the keyboard/mouse in the multi-user mode that might be wrong? Does anyone have an idea on what we could try?
By the way, all USB is disabled in the BIOS.
