Does anyone know where photon keeps its config files on the hardware of your machine or does it keep config files?
I am encountering a very strange problem:
I installed 6.3 and then SP2 on a hard drive plugged into a machine with a PS/2 keyboard and mouse (how I LONG for USB support during O/S installation). I then enabled USB support after the O/S installed.
Now when I take that hard drive and place it in my target system and boot to photon I don’t have any keyboard or mouse. I even placed the drive in a 3rd PC which has both USB and PS/2 connectors.
What’s really strange is that on the 3rd PC, when I boot in terminal mode, I have PS/2 keyboard and mouse. If I then type ‘ph’ and enter photon I still have keyboard and mouse. But if I boot straight to photon I don’t have keyboard or mouse (either USB OR PS/2 so photon somehow loses both PS/2 and USB).
So I wonder if either my other 2 machines are very non-standard or photon is writing some config files based on the inital installation PC. Does anyone know if there is anything I need to run to have photon reconfigure itself in some way?
In rc.local I start USB support as follows (tho I don’t think you really need it for keyboard/mouse but I do start this so I included it here):
echo “Starting USB support”
io-usb -d ehci
Then in /usr/bin/ph I modded the script at Line 125 to do the following
/sbin/io-hid -d usb &
/usr/photon/bin/devi-hid kbd -k1,500 mouse &
The above 3 lines in that spot in the ph file work on many other machines I have but not on this one or this install of the O/S. If I comment out those lines, then PS/2 works on the 3rd machine but of course I have no USB keyboard/mouse on my target machine.
