FS#306 - Keyboard and Mouse don't work in 1.9.18

I burned the ISO of 1.9.18 and running the live cd i get to the languages and i can’t click on the ok, it just sits there with the white cursor blinking on the ok button and if i wait long enough it will go into the Verbose mode and then to the resolutions and i can’t move up or down or click on anything my mouse and keyboard don’t work, i have had no problems with mouse and keyboard on the other versions. My mouse is a Logitech LX3 and my keyboard is a Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard

I’ve got the same problem.
Useing 1.9.18 I have no USB. Running it on my laptop with nforce chipset.

can anybody run a “dmesg” command or try to go to the console 12 ? (Ctrl + Alt + F12), in order to see if there’s any error reading the CD.

Also, try to go to the console 2 and do a root login, then check the logs of Xorg in /var/log to see if there’s any error with the gracphial system or its configuration
