OpenSUSE Install :: Delayed USB Devices At Startup?


When I reboot, USB keyboard acts just fine for GRUB. Once SUSE begins to boot, I lose the keyboard (numlock light goes off too). Cannot press ESC to watch the boot sequence. Then, at login, there is no mouse or keyboard for about 60 seconds. Then suddenly, they both become active. Why did this start happening?

It has been about a week since my last reboot, so there's been a few config changes and patches, so it's going to be hard to narrow down a culprit. Thought USB configs in /etc/fstab was the problem, but still happening after rolling back changes to a known good config. Re-ran SaX2. Mouse and keyboard look good in the config file. Also, have otherwise healthy USB behavior with thumb drives and in VirtualBox machines. It just acts goofy at boot time.
