USB Keyboard

Hi All

Been a while since the source code was released by Irex has anyone had any luck getting a USB Keyboard working with the Iliad?

I would add that I am not a programmer so all the instructions mean little to me it is like a foreign language. I was wonderng if it could me made simpler? i.e. USB keyboard being built into the Linux kernel so it just works automagically! Perhaps I am expecting too much!

Sources and the kernel have nothing to do with it. We'll have to simply include the keyboard software into the community OS and have it start on boot. You'll probably see this included in the first release.
