View Full Version : [ubuntu] GeOS - logon prompt no USB keyboard

May 5th, 2008, 12:08 PM
Not a real linux guru, so was hoping someone may help.

I am testing latest GeOS installation. Installation went fine, POST I have keyboard, Grub ESC prompt I have keyboard, but when I get to the logon prompt ... no keyboard.

The unit I am installing on only has USB ports. I have gone through the BIOS and confirmed, have done the tap tap tap of a random button during boot, used USB to PS2 converters etc - no luck.

Im wandering if its cause GeOS doesnt have USB drivers? (unlikely? how do I check?) or I need to put some prompt in the boot config line in Grub?

Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

At last hope, is there code I can add to the grub line to start the SSH Service?

Any assistance would be appreciated - trying to build a thin file / vmware test server.
