Re: reading user input in %pre script no longer working



	Hi Ben
	On my computer, the input is read from "VT 3", so, in order to use
keyboard what I do is:

	chvt 3
	echo "Message"
	echo -e "\e[2J;1HMessage on serial visor" > /dev/ttyS2

	EXIT=0
	while [ "$EXIT" == "0" ]
	do
		some commands
	done


	Try appending that "chvt 3" on your script before your command

	Regards
	Pablo
