USB Keyboard / Dell Optiplex 745 / FreeBSD 6.2

Just wanted to confirm that the usb-keyboard is not working in the
installer with Dell Optiplex 745 and FreeBSD 6.2.
Though it works in the boot loader, but stops working (num lock light
is set to off) when usb support is enabled by FreeBSD.

I also tried booting with verbose logging on, but did not
see an error, only that FreeBSD detects atkbd0, although there
is no ps/2 port (so bios ps/2 emulation).

There are many postings about the whole optiplex series out there
having that problem, but there seems no solution until today.

Or does anyone else know more about that?


Think about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
