i2c_hid & cryptdevice

you’ll find lots of people complaining about luks, cryptdevice, grub and a damn usb keyboard… now, the fun comes with new laptops like the one i’m playing with

first of all it has on board a cursed SoC called baytrail (renamed bayFAIL by most of the people on the internet) …. second, well…. whatever… you are on your own … as me, as always

the laptop is a Lenovo 100S, it comes for 199EUR off the shelf in any electronics store in Germany… and to install, go straight to a Debian Testing amd64+i386 DVD iso… to be dd-ed onto a usb stick. Don’t use a non-multiarch installer, the EFI will be ur enemy. It won’t boot😉

so…. the solution for the damn keyboard… once installed… and once you logged in with an external usb keyboard is to modify the /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and add the following:

i2c_designware_platform
i2c_designware_core
i2c_algo_bit
i2c_hid

then just type:

update-initramfs -u

and reboot

…yes, you are welcome
