Yeah... your os is working so fine that users begin to expect their USB keyboard to work out of the box, rather than on the PS/2 driver:
On linux:

The empty slots of the memory card reader:
root@debian:/home/paul# dmesg | grep /dev/sd?
grep: /dev/sdb: No medium found
grep: /dev/sdc: No medium found
grep: /dev/sdd: No medium found

Hello dufresnep,

Thanks for the report. From the log it looks like the keyboard is detected fine. And if the mouse is fine (looks like it's on the same controller) then the interrupts must be coming through. So this is on real hardware? I ask because you mentioned a virtual machine, and at least with VMware the keyboard is usually presented as a virtual PS2 device, even if your real keyboard is USB. I see that there are some errors there related to PS2 keyboard initialization.

Yes, it is real hardware.
There is an almost 1 min error looping in terminal before the graphical UI kicks in.

Yeah sorry about the delay. I'm guessing that it's doing a bunch of retries on the SCSI slots of your card reader, and most of the time is spent rendering and scrolling the error messages.

Is it possible to test out some other USB keyboard on this machine (preferably one that happens to work with Visopsys on some other machine) and see whether it works on this machine? It would help to understand whether the problem the Visopsys code is having is because of the USB controller hardware in this machine, vs. the keyboard device itself.

Will test... I intend to disconnect the card reader to see if it eliminates the delay at the beginning.
Yes, I could also test a usb key, or some(s) other(s) keyboard(s).

BTW, I have tried on my Atom based laptop.
Working fine (I think the touchpad and keyboard is like PS/2 keyboard and mouse emulated).
But it mentioned 4 USB unknown devices, reported as being wireless devices.
I guess, it is internal wireless card... but unsure why it would happens 4 times with very minors differences.
So, network was not activated.
And when I do "ifconfig", it says malloc cannot allocate zero bytes (WindowConstruct).

Was trying to use "view" to view visoploader.log (or similar name), but realized that it was not showing because it is binary file (by icon type).
Still, I am a bit curious as why it is a binary file.

BTW, I am very impressed, as this small system supports AHCI (FreeDOS does not seems to do yet), and even seems to know abot BIOS tables (ACPI).

On my Quad core CPU:
I disconnected the card reader, and indeed the long delay is gone.

If I connect an other USB key at boot time, then I see it and the content during the live system.
Seems you cannot change the USB key during live mode and expects to see the change in computer window.

I tried an other USB keyboard (Microsoft) but was not seeing it either.
Connecting a PS/2 keyboard works fine.

Speaking of strange things users can do...
While I was having only the USB key on which visopsys is installed and no other drive...
I tried defrag (on the live system)... it told me it was mounted, and needed to be unmounted before defrag.
But once unmounted, defragmentation stop at the very beginning because some files was not found.
And euh... no files at all was found after that... I had to hard reboot.

PS/2 keyboard detected but not connected

Post by dufresnep » Thu Aug 01, 2019 3:03 pm

Ok, I just booted with my ACER usb2 keyboard, no card reader, and I am including the specific part of kernel.log.

Make me think if usb:2.0 is really supported.

Other USB key well detected... this is *not* the one on which visopsys is booting from.

Hot (un-)plugging is supposed to work, in theory.

Hmm, well that's starting to point in the direction of the host controller driver, then. Not sure how to proceed really, as debugging something like that remotely can be very iterative, and right now I'm struggling for time.

Yeah, that should probably be something that you're not allowed to do :lol:

USB 1, 2, and 3 are all supported generally speaking, but I'm not sure I've ever encountered a USB2 keyboard (or mouse) before. Most vendors don't seem to bother going higher than 1.1 for these (usually) low-speed devices. It's possible there's some incorrect assumption in the USB keyboard driver code.

Well, PS2 keyboard is effectively always 'detected' in the sense that the controller is built into the PC motherboard. The error messages basically reflect the fact that it couldn't get a response from any actual device. I suppose with a bit of sophistication, the code could be made to report no keyboard in that case. OTOH, most people don't read the log file :-)

I am thinking of trying these USB keyboards on my Atom laptop see if this is more about controller or devices itself.
