How do I get a usb keyboard to work? I have already selected and compiled the USB HID transport layer and I don't know what else to do.

Presuming you have your other USB stuff right (ehci/uhci, etc):

Device Drivers -> HID support -> USB HID support -> USB HID Transport Layer

Ah, so you said, lol. Well, if you are sure the USB stuff is good and that is selected, it should work...which I am guessing it may be hard to tell if the USB stuff in general works if your keyboard doesn't ;) – goldilocks Feb 2 '13 at 23:01
