The keyboard lags behind after the start

Hi.

I’m experimenting with running a Jetson TX2 with another Linux distribution. In my case this is Crux Linux. I used rootfs from this distribution, and the system start was fine. The problem is just that the keypad will turn on after the prompt has started in about 30 seconds. I compiled the kernel using the make tegra18_defconfig configuration from L4T 28.1.
Where to find solutions?
Note: If I’m in the wrong forum, do not respond to this message.

Do you have a separate numeric keypad? Or are you saying the regular keyboard waits too long to enable? Are you using the GUI, or text-only console?

Is the rootfs entirely from Crux? If so, then you wouldn’t be using the NVIDIA hardware-accelerated drivers and X11 would be a software-only rendered GUI without the GPU helping. This would be quite slow.

Hi linuxdev

I use only a text console, a classic keyboard, and a rootfs of Crux-Arm 64bit. It is a minimal rootfs without an X and GUI interface. The last result of activating bash promnt after activating the keyboard is 55 seconds. Personally, I do not mind but I think keyboard activation should be before bash promnt.
Maybe there is a mistake in Crux not using systemd but sysvinit. Or udev.rules ???

I would have to wonder how you know the keyboard isn’t active before a bash prompt? Are you going by something like the caps lock LED? What is it you want to do with the keyboard prior to bash prompt?

I have no knowledge of Crux, but it shouldn’t matter if it is sys V or systemd unless there is some error in setup. Often when something mysteriously takes a long time to boot it is because some service is waiting and then timing out. A big example would be if WiFi were configured and it tried some network configuration and waited for the first attempt to time out before moving on. If you have a boot log with time stamps you might look to see if one particular event took a long pause.

I was wrong to say. When appears on the monitor, the keyboard is not active. I added an init script to enable +num leds.
which shows me at the light status. So when the keypad is lit, the keyboard is active.
I’m adding a link to a video demo https://youtu.be/QK77G1ZGiSU
It’s from your cellphone. No quality, however, shows how long the keyboard activates.

That looked fairly “normal”, but I don’t know what Crux does for boot. Is there a “/var/log/boot.log” or dmesg output with timestamps? I couldn’t actually see a keyboard light, and I don’t know where you added code to set num lock. Please add details about how num lock is enabled.

Keep in mind that in part you are seeing boot log information on the first tty. The actual login is separate and the two interleave and display simultaneously on the same terminal. If you were to go to an alternate console (such as via ALT-F2), then your login prompt wouldn’t show as much from system messages. The login terminal and the system messages run in separate threads and despite looking as though they are a single program they are independent (and timing may not be what it looks like).

All is working as expected. This is just a case of how your init is set to bring up different parts of the system…it isn’t that USB is disabled, nor is it that the keyboard is disabled/enabled. It’s that the console function which watches and responds to the keyboard is not started until the rest of the system is started.

Runlevels differ among distributions, and can be customized even within a distribution. Some of those treat interactive keyboard the same even if other parts differ, e.g., “single user” with and without networking often both exist…but on some systems networking may not exist, or there may be no definition of a run level for single user without networking. I’ll call that single user. When multiple persons can log in it becomes multi-user.

Take care to note that multi-user might or might not allow network logins. There may instead be multiple text terminals and no networking…there is no exact definition across all variants of Linux.

The basic flow though is that your system will turn on most of what needs to run first. Then it will allow a console login locally for one person. Then login locally will be added for multiple persons (e.g., ALT-F1 through ALT-F6). Then one of those local logins in text mode will be respawned for GUI mode (the text getty is replaced by a GUI login manager).

Until a login level is reached there is no interaction in the normal sense. The presence of logging information during boot is not the same as having reached the ability to log in…that boot information is a separate program sharing the same monitor.

You would have to change init and runlevels to change this. Crux may have some sort of runlevel editor or document which could say to skip parts of boot, or even re-order parts…I don’t know what Crux does. But don’t mistake the lack of a program accepting keyboard events for whether or not the keyboard is functioning…until login programs exist you can refer to the saying that “the lights are on, but nobody is home”. You can knock on the door all you want, but nobody will answer if nobody is home (keyboard lights are not changed as on/off by the keyboard…they are changed by software responding to the correct key down/up event).

Thank you for your patience. I will direct other questions to the Crux Linux forum.

There’s a long gap here. It’s likely waiting to try to bring up wlan0 before proceeding.
If that is the case, you should be able to configure that device as being plug-and-play rather than wait-for-boot.
That should make boot go faster.

Hi snarky.

Thank you for the tip.
I will start the wlan0 configuration.

Hi linuxdev and snarky.

The solution is in the sample root file system. I added the 50-firmware.rules rule to Crux /lib/udev/udev.d/. The keyboard is now active.

Quote from 50-firmware.rules:

stub for immediately telling the kernel that userspace firmware loading failed;

necessary to avoid long timeouts with CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER = y

Thanks you for your time and support
