Whats this

Well its my atempt to make a (boot)keyboard driver for OS4's usb stack.

This driver is based on the offcial driver from Thomas Graff. So many thanks
to him for the source code.

At this time of the release of v1.5 and Update #4, this driver has the advantice
of Querying the system for Repeat and Delay times for the keys, the officiel
dont seam to do that.

My hope is that some one can use this source for further driver development for

Any bug report is gladley recived on ac()rebels.com

copy rKeyboard.usbfd to devs:usb/fd/

copy rKeyboard.fdclass to devs:usb/fdclasses/

Now you'll think thats its all done, but think again.

First OS4's usb stack comes with a bootkeyboard already so you have to remove
the bootkeyboard (bootkeyboard.fdclass) from the dir (devs:USB/fdclasses/)

Second there is a HID class (Human Interface Device) meaning a mouse and
keyboard class, that also have to go.

Now you can start the usb stack and run USBInspector to check that the driver
got loaded.
