10.5.1 kalyway ps2 keyboard don't work!
maybe it would work with an adapter to usb but now i don't have
either a usb keyboard ...so what can i do for now?
i need to test the 8800gt kexts badly but i can't fix permissions cause no keyboard!!
could i fix permissions without keyboard?? (from diskutil i think it's not only this)
the P5K premium has only 1 ps2 port (somebody said connect another mouse in ps2 port will solve problem)
even in single user mode there is no keyboard
cause there was a solution like this:
kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
kextload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
but i can't write even in single user!
anything to try for now...? ;)

Worst case, I seem to recall you can enable ssh login with just the mouse & then remote in.

install without choose vanilla kernel and acpi_fix
(but choose your darwin loader)
and after the installation ps2 keyboard works
then you can boot always with vanilla or replace the normal mach_kernel with vanilla's
and from the dvd install manually the acpi_fix
ps2 keyboard will work after reboot

confirming, worked for me. i tried first part and installed without vanilla kernel and acpi_fix. PS2 work all the way.

why should i install vanilla kernel and acpi_fix anyway? better performance?
