Thanks for your reply!
If I am not mistaken the "fix" for this problem is to remove the AT
keyboard driver from the kernel? This is mentioned somewhere in the
handbook, too I think. There are two entries in the kernel configuration
for the keyboard (controller):
device atkbdc0 at isa? port IO_KBD
device atkbd0 at atkbdc? irq 1 # flags 0x1: remove and reconnect kbd correctly
Which one has to be removed? Probably both, right? But as far as I understand, the
atkbdc0 also controls the PS/2 mouse; does that mean it is not possible to use
a USB keyboard with a PS/2 mouse?
Sounds like I should keep using the keyboard with the USB-to-PS/2
converter, doesn't it? :) But I'll try removing the AT driver first.
