I first wanted to say how nice it is to see linux boot from linuxbios
with graphical console and have X come up... a beautiful thing!
So now when linux boots, video looks good, but I am unable to use the
mouse + keyboard. I have CONFIG_CONSOLE_SERIAL8250 defined in linuxbios
and I think this may have something to with it (but then again this
could just be a generic linux problem and nothing to do with linuxbios).
Any ideas? Will I need btextconsole.c to fix this?
Im just trying to determine if I need to modify something in linuxbios
resolve this? Otherwise Ill assume this to be a more generic linux
console problem and proceed from there. any input is welcome. thanks...
