Re: DragonFly-2.2.1 installation problem

there have previously been problems with USB keyboards, but most of the
related bug reports were 2-3 years old.
I've stumbled across this:
It might help or it just may not. 

In any case we definitely need more info; does anything regarding the
keyboard show up in dmesg? Do you have a PS/2 keyboard around to be able
to try that?
