I further investigated in the no keyboard, no mouse problem
on Raspberry Pi.
When compiling SDL2 (I used version 2.0.3 ) on Raspberry Pi,
please make sure (as explained in SDL2's README-rasperrypi.txt)
1) meet the Build Dependencies for SDL2 on Raspberry Pi:
sudo apt-get install libudev-dev libasound2-dev libdbus-1-dev
2) the pi user (or the user you intend to run SDL2 apps with) is member
of the input group
sudo usermod -aG input `whoami`
It seems like logging out and logging in is required for the group
membership to become active. At least it was for me.
Only then start building SLD2 (in SDL2's directory):
./configure; make; sudo make install
Running oberon-risc-emu should have working mouse and keyboard then.
On one system I tried to use SLD2 without meeting the Build
Dependencies ( 1) above): SDL2 compiles fine but keyboard and mouse
will not work with oberon-risc-emu. Only establishing 1), removing the
SDL2 directory, re-unpacking SDL2 and compiling from scratch helped.
A mere rerun of configure; make; sudo make install did not succeed.
Let us know if this works for you.
