Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113996
unbound keys for jp kbd in console
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:11 EST
Description of problem:
The 'ï¿¥'-'|' key to the left of Backspace and the '\'-'_'
key to the left of Right_Shift key don't seem to be bound
currently in the console. Not being able to input these
characters easily on a console is highly annoying.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the keyboard to jp106 during (after) install.
2. Press the Yen key (left of Backspace) in a VC.
3. Press the Backslash key (left of the right Shift key) in a VC.
No output on console.
The Yen key usually outputs Backslash (or vice versa
depending on the font etc). They work fine in FC1.
Seems to be ok now with kernel-2.6.1-1.61.
The problem is happening with kernel-2.6.1-18.104.22.168 now too.
Is this any better recently?
I have a jp106 on fc2 and I have no problems pressing the yen key (to
get the backslash)
comment 4: using kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3
Yes, looks fine to me with RHEL4-re0806.nightly
(kernel-2.6.7-1.505) too. :)
Probably already fixed in A4 I suspect but I haven't test that.
