install with wireless keyboard and mouse...

Description

Hi, PCBSD,

I know, it looks like a weird request, but on Linux my keyboard (Hewlet-Packard 2007) and mouse always work straight away so I can perform the install, but on FreeBSD they don't work.
I was expecting PCBSD to solve this, as you work more for the home user.
But no...Why not BSD if Linux always succeeds?
I know, Linux is not BSD, but besides this...I was thinking BSD was the best OS around.And I can't install...

Before I can begin to diagnose this, I'll need a lot more info. First, does the keyboard / mouse fail on the installed system, or the installer itself? Also, are these PS2 or USB? How about at the console, when you boot the DVD, can you use the keyboard and go to ctrl-alt-F1 and use the console at all?

Hi, Kris,
The keyboard and mouse fail on the installer first screen. Both are wireless with the receiver being USB.
So I can't use the keyboard and mouse at all.
Ctrl-alt-F1 does not react.
From the scrolling text before the graphical installer I could read:

USB alloc device 1586
USB alloc device 1624
device descriptor failed at addr2

a bit later

uhub reattach port:435:could not allocate new device

I hope this helps you.
If I can still help, feel free to contact.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Thanks for the info. That helps narrow it down to a problem with the new USB subsystem in FreeBSD 8.0. If you can, go ahead and report this bug to the FreeBSD USB mailing list:

http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb

That's where the USB devs hang-out, and they should be able to figure out what those errors are, and get a fix into FreeBSD (which also will fix PC-BSD)
