I just got my Pi recently, and it's pretty cool. But I have been having some trouble getting up and running. For instance: I bought a PS/2 to USB adapter (as I talked about in this forum post: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 148#p45148), but no keyboard I've tried has worked with it yet. I'm not sure, maybe it's a driver thing?
Also, today I bought a cheap USB keyboard to test with the Pi (This one: http://www.microcenter.com/single_produ ... id=0373546, cheapest they had), and it doesn't work either. Difference is, this one causes a kernel panic whenever I plug it in. Very strange.
I also purchased this USB Hub (pictured): http://www.microcenter.com/single_produ ... id=0360454
This was the strangest experience of all. I plugged the USB hub into the (unplugged) Pi, and the Pi just started up! Is it supposed to get power this way? Is this a feature of the USB Hub? Should I be concerned, or is this normal?
