Description Jens Petersen 2004-01-20 21:56:29 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):

How reproducible:
every time

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.
Actual results:
No output on console.

Expected results:

Additional info:
The Yen key usually outputs Backslash (or vice versa
depending on the font etc).  They work fine in FC1.
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2004-01-28 21:28:50 EST
Seems to be ok now with kernel-2.6.1-1.61.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-02-13 18:21:36 EST
The problem is happening with kernel-2.6.1- now too.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-07-29 17:25:38 EDT
Is this any better recently?
Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2004-07-29 17:30:44 EDT
I have a jp106 on fc2 and I have no problems pressing the yen key (to
get the backslash)
Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2004-07-29 17:31:37 EDT
comment 4: using kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2004-08-06 05:45:57 EDT
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.
