This post is being made from the Apple Mac Mini. For some reason the Linux PC decided to no longer recognize input from the keyboard. I know the keyboard is good because it is working fine on the Mac Mini.
It also works fine during the sign-on process on the Linux PC as well. However, once I am signed on, the keyboard is no longer active. There is nothing like keeping a few challenges to solve.
I hope I can solve this problem without having to reinstall Linux. It is a good thing I have a backup PC.
UPDATE: I am beginning to wonder if it is a hardware problem. If I hold a key down long enough then it will work. Maybe this is a motherboard problem and not a software problem.
UPDATE: No, this has to be Linux problem. The KB works fine in the bios setup and during the log-in process. Any thoughts from any of you Linux Gurus?
UPDATE: I have now completely ruled out the possibility of it being a hardware problem because Linux runs fine off the CD. Something must have become corrupted on the hard drive.
UPDATE: As I think back on it, I think I remember seeing a message pop up saying that a buffer overrun has occurred. I have been taxing my old PC pretty good and it has been running at 100% utilization a fair amount of the time. However, the PC continued to run after I saw that message for a period of time.
