Subject2.6.8 rc2 still has keyboard trouble
Hi all,

It seems widely reported that recent versions of Linux do not work
properly with non-USB keyboards and mice when built for SMP. I just
tried 2.6.8rc2, and the problem is still there. The workaround many
people have is to turn off USB legacy support in their BIOS. On my Tyan
2665 motherboard there is no BIOS option to do this. If I turn off USB
support completely in the BIOS my machine runs OK, but then...... well,
I want USB working :-) With a non-SMP kernel I do not have any problems.

Is this problem being actively addressed by anyone, or is the "turn off
legacy support" workaround considered an adequate fix?
