I've got an Ultra 60, type 5 keyb and mouse. To get up to date a wee
bit I put in a Via based USB card i had lying about. Works fine and I
quickly installed a Microsoft Explorer mouse which works quite happily
in X. I tried a random usb keyb and i could type away quite happily but
whenever the machine is powered on, it complains that it can't "Open
Input Device" when the USB keyboard is the only keyb so i have to plug
in the old type 5 to get it to boot to screen.
So, what i want to know is - does anyone know about, or have any
experience of, using a Type 6 Sun USB keyboard as the primary keyboard
on a Sun machine that doesn't have built in USB (i.e. my Ultra 60)? The
fact the system tries to access the random USB keyboard leads me to
believe the version of the OBP on my U60 can talk to USB keyboards.
