You didn't mention this, but I think the framebuffer system is a bit
broken in the 2.5 series at the moment. Try to enable vga console and
see if that gives you screen output.
For the keyboard, the 2.5 kernel is a bit screwy with it's options to
get it working. You need to enable all the following options for
standart (AT) keyboards:
[*] Serial i/o support (needed for keyboard and mouse)
[*] i8042 PC Keyboard controller
[*] Serial port line discipline
- --- Input Device Drivers
[*] AT keyboard support
I would think that the first system you tried had a USB keyboard,
which wouldn't need these to function (except for the obvious
Keyboards option above).
Hope this helps.
