Hi Guys, I've just started to look at OpenWrt today. im using the openwrt-22.03.3-x86-legacy-generic-ext4-combined.img on my x86 System which uses a Realtek network and i have installed a second Realtek card which seem to be recognised on OpenWrt install. After a while the screen stops scrolling text and when i add and remove USB devices the actions get recognised but i have no power to my keyboard and im unable to hit the Enter button to progress. im new to OpenWrt and im stuck. im trying to run this on a ASUS M5A99X Evo R2.0 motherboard. Thanks in advance for any help or replies...
Can you provide some details run a linux distro could be anything that you like and provide us
So we know what are the hardware you have.also give some screenshot that where your screen stop. So we can look into the error.
sorry, should i be trying to install openwrt on linux. ive been trying to install from a USB stick?
I think the suggestion is to run another linux-based OS preferably debian-based (OpenWRT is also linux-based) to generate a report on what your ASUS hardware is doing when you plug in a USB device. Also provide the dmesg logs when the USB device is plugged in. And then openrouterman may be able to help you.
As far as I know, the recommended way to operate OpenWRT is through the LuCi web interface or SSH, so I don't even know if keyboard is enabled by default.
OK, Thanks for the reply guys..
Check the manifest to see if kmod-usb-hid is included in the legacy build. If you only see "New low speed USB device" but not it being claimed as a HID device, there is no HID driver (Human Interface Device, i.e. a keyboard) I know that kmod-usb-hid is now included in the x86_64 builds. All x86 CPUs made after about 2006 are 64-bit compatible and the x86_64 build should be used unless you do have very old 32 bit hardware.
If you do have very old hardware try the serial port, it will be active.
