Description Michal Koudelka (reporter) 2009-01-24 22:32:26 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION:

5.2008.43-7

STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:

1. Install MER (third partition of external card in my case, I am not sure it's
important)

2. Boot MER. This is my bootmenu item:

ITEM_NAME="Mer"
ITEM_ID="mer on p3"
ITEM_DEVICE="${EXT_CARD}p3"
ITEM_MODULES="mbcache jbd ext3"
ITEM_FSTYPE="ext3"
ITEM_FSOPTIONS="noatime,ro"
ITEM_LINUXRC="linuxrc"

EXPECTED OUTCOME:

I should be able to use screen keyboard or hardware keyboard.


ACTUAL OUTCOME:

I am not able to use hardware keyboard and I don't see screen keyboard. That's
why I am stucked on a dialog asking me for a full name.

REPRODUCIBILITY:

Always for me

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:

No

Solution: Check /var/run directory on your MER partition. Directory must exists
and be writable. If not, dbus and hal won't start.

I installed Mer 0.6 in the external card and both HW and SW keyboards works
fine.

I only have one issue in the HW keyboard, the FN key don't work.
