Does anyone have anything to share w.r.t. how the keyboard booting
lockup problem for HP zv6000 and Compaq R4000 laptops will be fixed?
I know there was some technical discussion being thrown around as to how
to get around bugs the the HP/Compaq keyboard controller.
I am familiar with the method where the keyboard test code funcitons in
atkbd.c are removed. I know there are workarounds. I'm just wondering
what the status of a permanent fix is, if a concensus has been reached
on how to proceed, and when we should expect such a fix to creep into
Also, last I tried, ACPI was working quite well (5.4-RELEASE) on my
Compaq R4000. Is the keyboard issue the only showstopper to getting
FreeBSD 6 booting/installing happily without modification on these machines?
FYI, the atkbd flags and disabling ACPI that work for zv5000/r3000
models does not work with the newer models. :(
