Description Nicolas CROISET 2000-07-16 02:22:26 EDT
Is it possible to add at the end of the /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit these lines :

for tty in /dev/tty[1-9]*;
   setleds -D +num < $tty > /dev/null

These lines permit to switch on numeric keyboard automatically for non graphic tty.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-07 01:23:47 EDT
Sorry, but I don't think this is that worthwhile; in most
BIOSes this is an option there, anyways.
Comment 2 Nicolas CROISET 2000-08-07 02:43:03 EDT
I have more than 50 PC under LInux, Some PC have this option in their BIOS, but the numeric keyboard is not ON.

The only way I find is this modification in the rc.sysinit.

Thanks for this add.
