DL380 G5 ILO2, java Remote Console only sometimes works SOLVED

Hello

If I boot with SystemRescueCD 3.0.0 or GRML 2011.12 I can login using
the ILO2 Java applet-based console.  If, however, I boot with my
home-made Gentoo, I cannot.

# uname -a #My home-made Gentoo
Linux hostname 3.5.4-vs2.3.4.3 #17 SMP Mon Oct 22 11:04:40 EST 2012
x86_64 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 5160 @ 3.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

Whether my Gentoo or the boot CDs, the framebuffer is as follows:
# dmesg | grep radeondrmfb
fbcon: radeondrmfb (fb0) is primary device
fb0: radeondrmfb frame buffer device
And, the framebuffer screens of GRML, SystemRescue and Gentoo look the
same.

What could be the cause of ILO2 not working with my Gentoo, but it does
with the boot CDs?

Regards

It's not clear to me in your post, so I'm making an assumption that when using the Java console you can see the screen OK, but when booting your custom Gentoo you have an unresponsive keyboard.  If this is the case first thing to check is USB support enabled, as the host OS sees iLO console as USB devices
