Notebook keyboard not working

Hello dear forum members! I installed fedora 40 workstation on my laptop, asus vivobook pro 15 n6506m and found that the keyboard does not work out of the box. What could be the problem?

  • Did the keyboard work with the Live Installer?
  • are you able to get a Fedora command-line with an external keyboard or using ssh from another systems?

From LHDB Probe #96859b01b7 of ASUSTek VivoBook_ASUSLaptop the system has a PS/2 keyboard. Some systems with PS/2 keyboard problems need to add
pnpacpi=offto GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in
/etc/default/grub (you can test this using the grub2 editor at boot).

If that fails, we will need more details which you may be able to obtain using % journalctl --no-hostname -b -g keyboard|cat in a terminal. Post the output as pre-formatted text (using the </> button from the top line of the text entry panel).

Thanks,George! I solved my problem by building the kernel version 6.10rc3. 218745 – Laptop Internal keyboard not working on ASUS Vivobook N6506MV on ubuntu 24.04
