Description

When trying to boot Dragonfly 2.8.2 i386 from CD on my desktop, the process
succeeds to the login: prompt. However I can not login because the keyboard
doesn't work.
Desktop is an Acer M7720 with Intel core I7 and 6 GB memory. Keyboard and mouse
are connected via USB.

Try different USB ports. It's occasionally worked in the past where
someone can't get USB devices working on, say, the front ports of a
computer but the ones on the back (on a different controller) do work.

Past that - see if there's different modes for USB in BIOS, or maybe don't
load ehci.ko on boot.

Another option is to try without loading ehci, it might well be causing issues.
