SubjectKeyboard timed out
Hallo all!

I started compiling the new kernel, when I realized I was also compiling
e2fsprogs on another VC. I switched console (I've remapped the Pause key
to do that), pressed Scroll Lock, pressed Pause again.

Then I received a bunch of errors.

This should give you the idea:

for(;;) { puts("Keyboard timed out"); sleep(3); };

/var/adm/syslog just reports one of them:

Jun 4 10:04:14 shalott kernel: fcntl_setlk() called by process 109 (sendmail)
with broken flock() emulation
Jun 4 10:04:15 shalott last message repeated 3 times
Jun 4 11:19:04 shalott kernel: Keyboard timed out
Jun 4 11:23:54 shalott kernel: Console: 16 point font, 400 scans

I had to reboot the hard way; console switching still worked but C-A-A - or
any other key - did not.

I've got a quite-bleeding-edge system: 1.99.10, insmod 1.3.69k etc, but I
also got this message with kernel 1.3.x some time ago. It happened only on
my hardware, as far as I can remember, and I use lots of Linux systems every
day.

The keyboard is a standard PC one.
I've got an ISA serial card which replaces my broken cua0.

The following comes from my system after the reboot (sorry if it's pedantic).

=====================

That's all. Thank you for giving me Linux. I needed it.


All The Best,
