Title: any fixing command other than "i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset=1" ?
Post by: vincent2 on March 12, 2009, 05:29:53 am
Bonjour!
Even running on latest VL6.0gold,
I  again  and again lost keyboard(japanese ,jp105) and mouse(on mousepad) running savage driver on this Sharp mebius laptop PC-GP10-BM(twisterK IGP + via KN133 based mb+amd athlon xp-m 1500+), no response from keyboard and  laptop mouse, only solution seems to be pluging in another USB mouse to save all my editing documents and reboot.

Another day  I came across a post in ubuntoo forum on similar issue, it suggested adding  "i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset=1" to append line at "lilo.conf"  , I followed suit ,once rebooting back to xfce ,keyboard+mouse freez issue remains,somehow less frequent not always.

any fixing command other than "i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset=1" for keyboard+mouse freez issue on laptop?
Or have no choice but disabling the onboard mousepad from BIOS and only using USB mouse?
