I have been trying to load DragonFly BSD up via the LiveCD (version 2.10.1),
and I have not been able to get past the step at which the system is looking
for an AT keyboard (atkbd0: <AT Keyboard> flags 0x1 irq 1 on atkbdc0). There
is no PS/2 port on my motherboard, and I don't know how to get it not to check
for an AT keyboard (the ukbd man page says to remove device atkbd from the
kernel configuration file, but I don't know where that is on the Live CD).

I have included a picture from a recent attempt to boot it using the "verbose"
option from the menu on the SMP kernel. The boot process appears to stall at
this, with no apparent indication as to any issues.

I seem to be having the same issue when I try to boot the live cd on a Macbook
7,1. I'm going to look into this.

Bug has been fixed by Sepherosa Ziehau,

Building a new kernel without the atkbd0 driver (and psm0 because it depends on
it) would have worked too, but this real fix is much better than a workaround.
