How silly of me to think that I would just be able to plug in this USB keyboard and have it work under Debian.

I installed the hotplug scripts, I've upgraded my kernel to 2.6.6, I've modprobed various combinations of USB modules. lspci does show the USB PCI card I just installed. But there are no messages in the log when I plug the keyboard in. No errors or anything, just nothing. This is the first time I've tried to use anything USB on this system.

The keyboard is actually a keyboard, mouse X 2 (trackpoint and navpad) and has 2 USB ports in the back. So maybe I need to load a variety of modules. I've been trying in both console and X.

The keyboard itself does work; I tested it on another computer.

If anyone has any tips, I'd love to hear them.
