Pinebook Pro- configuration aborts setting keyboard layout
I encountered this issue when I first received and tried to set up my Pinebook Pro, a little over a week ago. Life events have prevented me from revisiting it until now...

When I first started the PBP, I was presented with a screen to select a keyboard layout. As I have an ANSI variant, I used the arrow key to try to select it, but the system instead took me to the "create a user" screen. So, I typed in a user name and pressed "Enter," at which point the system reported "Configuration aborted. Restarting OEM script..." then clear the screen and print that message again.

Eventually I was able to get out of that loop using the left arrow. This would return me to the keyboard layout selection screen. At this point, I was able to select the ANSI layout but, when I pressed "Enter," the user creation screen flashed briefly, but then the system returned to "Configuation aborted. Restarting OEM script..."

I have powered the PBP down, and revisited it hours, a day, and a week later, just to see if anything would be different, but it isn't (not surprisingly, I guess)

I imagine this might be a software issue, and might be helped by working with a fresh image (which I may have some time to figure out in the next few days), but I also wondered if there might be something funky going on with the keyboard.

Has anyone experienced this behaviour and/or know how to resolve it?

I am really excited to try the PBP, but this month has been tough, and I'm feeling a little defeated at this point. Any help would be appreciated Smile
