[Bug 1495112] Re: Keyboard doesn't work for crypt passphrase on bootup


Thank you for the guidance.  I will need a bit more coaching than
appears on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds

First, is the kernel I should test the top one listed on
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ or is it
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/?C=N;O=D ?  Please advise.

Second, the directions say I need to uninstall proprietary or out-of-
tree modules (ex. vitualbox, nvidia, fglrx, bcmwl, etc.) [unless there
is an extra package available for the version I am  testing].  How can I
tell what's installed?

Otherwise I think I can follow the directions on the MainlineBuilds

Thank you very much.

  Keyboard doesn't work for crypt passphrase on bootup

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have to hard reboot and then select a kernel. The keyboard does work
  for the text-based, i.e., not GUI, entry of the crypt passphrase, and
  then the boot proceeds.
