joystick and keyboard are not detected in fresh install on ROPi 4.2 - efeferrari - 03-24-2019

Hello, guys!

After some years of inactivity I installed a fresh copy of ROPi 4.2 in my OPi Plus2 without problems, but system don't recognize usb keyboard nor joystick.

I have Retrolink N64 wired joystick and a USB wireless Microsoft. I've read about Retrolink joystick troubles, but a keyboard problem it's weird.

It could be compatibility with my board?

Please make sure you have a 3A powersupply, I have had these issues with the past due to not enough power.

also consider compatibility issue, kernel used is old, so newer hardware might not work

I'm bought my board in kit with an 3A AC Adapter and I've installed before a previous version of ROPi.

That's weird! My board is a Plus 2 and some years ago my keyboard worked fine.
Also, I've check in AliExpress, but I can't find Plus2. ¿My board is discontinued?
