[Mondo-devel] Mindi Issue with Keyboard Driver Not Getting Loaded

Mark Burnison-2

Hi All,

I am having an issue with the diver for my USB Microsoft keyboard (hid_microsoft) not getting load when I boot with a Mondoarchive recovery DVD. I used the following to create a test DVD iso:

mondoarchive -Oi -d /bkup/mondorescue -I '/home' -E '/home/mark/Downloads/torrent' -g -N -s 4480m -p `hostname`-`date +%y%m%d%H%M`

I then burn a DVD from the iso created and boot my system from that DVD. At the Boot: prompt, my keyboard is working and I am able to enter the 'compare' option. But once the system boots to do the compare, the keyboard stops working. I have an old Dell USB keyboard that I plug in and I am able to complete the test.

I tried to use the FORCE_MODS= option in the mindi.conf file to forces the hid_microsoft module to be loaded. I tried three tests: 1) FORCE_MODS="hid_microsoft", 2) FORCE_MODS="hid-microsoft" and 3) FORCE_MODS="hid_microsoft hid-microsoft" but none of those worked. In tests 2 and 3, the driver (hid-microsoft.ko) was at least include in the hid driver folder, /lib/modules/3.13.0-93-generic/kernel/drivers/hid. After each test, I ran the lsmod command and the hid_microsoft module was not loaded but the hid_generic keyboard module was loaded. I did find that if I did a modprob hid_microsoft command, my Microsoft keyboard start to work.

For some reason the FORCE_MODS= option is not working for me. I have attached the mondoarchive, mondorestore logs and the lsmod output for test 3 (FORCE_MODS="hid_microsoft hid-microsoft"). I am also including the lsmod from my system.

Mondorescue Version:
libmondorescue-perl 3.2.2-1
mindi               3.0.2-1
mindi-busybox       1.21.1-1
mondo               3.2.2-1

I am running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a Dell XPS 8300. Below are the output of the lsb_release and uname commands.

mark@MU:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
Release:        14.04
Codename:       trusty

mark@MU:~$ uname -a
Linux MU 3.13.0-93-generic #140-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jul 18 21:21:05 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Please let me know what I can do to get the keyboard module loaded during boot.

- Mark

Ok, thanks for this report. I have now included that driver in the std list.

The init script at boot time is however supposed to load all drivers found
in the list, so I'm unsure why it doesn't in this case. You could force
again that at restore time by using the forcemods=hid-microsoft on the boot
line of your boot loader.

Could you try with the latest beta I rebuilt for you available here:
ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/ubuntu/14.04/

TIA,
Bruno.
