Usually, that's an indication that there are a bunch of files in that
directory. First of all, using "-l" makes the ls take a *LOT* longer.
I'd recommend trying "find /tmp | less" to take a look at what's in
there. It should be fairly obvious what files are the problems.
Actual error message: "Keyboard not connected. Press F1 to continue."
