Default Bug report: Which package?

Hi list,

I am having trouble with Debian, and I do not know which package is
responsible for that. According to the wiki, I should then go here to ask, so
that's what I do
The problem is that my USB keyboard and mouse do not work properly when Debian
starts up: Only if they are plugged in after boot finished, they will work. If
I have them plugged in already during boot, they still work fine in GRUB, but
when the graphical login comes up, neither mouse nor keyboard react. This
happens both with the devices connected directly to a USB port and with an
active hub in between. I am running Debian testing with all updates applied.
The mainboard is Gigabyte 965P-DS3, if that's of any help.

Kind regards,
Ralf Jung

PS: I did not (yet) subscribe to the list, I hope that's not an issue... if it
is, just tell me and I am going to register ;-)

Sounds like an X.org problem. First, make sure you have the packages
"xserver-xorg-input-evdev", "xserver-xorg-input-kbd", and "xserver-xorg-input-
mouse" installed. If so, I think the bug is with one of those packages,
probably -evdev.

Like others have said, xorg-input-input-evdev is the most likely
suspect. But you should check first if the problem really is in X only.
So when you are on the login screen, press ctrl-alt-f1 and see if it
drops you to a console. Try to login there. If that doesn't work, the
problem is not in X but most likely with udev or even the kernel.

To workaround the situation, you could try to add the following
to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (section "ServerFlags"), create it if necessary:
option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"


Hope this helps,
Arno

Default Bug report: Which package?

Hi,

sorry it took me so long to react to your quick and helpful replies, I first
had to recover from an illness.

I verified that xserver-xorg-input-evdev is installed. The packages xserver-
xorg-input-{kbd,mouse} were not installed, but installing them changed
nothing.

Ctrl+Alt+F<1-6> does not do anything. SysRQ+reisub however triggers a reboot,
as expected.

I just noticed an oddity during system book: It's saying
"startpar: service(s) returned failure: udev". In the system log however I
found no mentioning of udev besides two lines saying "<30>udev[...]: starting
version 167". But I guess this is still not okay?

Kind regards,
Ralf Jung
