OpenSuSE 11.2 – keyboard does not work in

OpenSuSE 11.2 OpenSuSE 11.2 is out.As usual, not everything works. This time? In for a real charm: keyboard and mouse does not work in Xorg. Even when removing the config and running SaX2 it does not work. After som help from #suse @ freenode I got a crucial clue to it. Quoting xorg.conf in 11.2:

Section "ServerFlags"
  # Uncomment the following option to reenable 
  # kbd/mouse driver sections.
  # Otherwise evdev driver is used.
  # Option       "AutoAddDevices" "off"
  Option       "AIGLX" "on"
  Option       "AllowMouseOpenFail" "on"
  Option       "ZapWarning" "on"

That’s right. Just uncomment that one line, # Option "AutoAddDevices" "off" – restart X, and everything worked. You can do this from SSH, or you can do it from the console – where the keyboard works fine. Just boot in single user mode or ssh in.
