After booting from the installation media 5.4 keyboard not functional. Release 5.2.2 does not have this issue.

My hardware is a old Core 2 Duo laptop, with embedded standard PS/2-keyboard. External USB-keyboard works fine.

I have pushed a commit to both master and DragonFly_RELEASE_5_4 which changes the work that we believe broke the keyboard. Please pull and recompile your kernel and tell us if it fixed it. We do not have images up for the fix yet.

if you need sources:

cd /usr
make src-create

Make sure you are on the correct branch (either master or DragonFly_RELEASE_5_4). Pull the latest sources if you already have the git repo. The commit should be near the top, commit id 0b783d533b7dd.

cd /usr/src
git checkout DragonFly_RELEASE_5_4

git pull

Compile (be sure compile finishes clean without errors) and install new kernel, reboot, and test:

cd /usr/src
make -j 4 nativekernel
make installkernel
