Description Seth Heckard 2000-10-03 03:31:35 UTC
I had this exact same problem in rawhide/pinstripe, and did a reinstall
when 7.0 was available.  The problem is that keys don't repeat when held
down in either X or console.   I can get the keys to repeat after pressing
<Shift+NumLock>, but then the keypad is unusable whether NumLock is on or
off.

We can't reproduce this. Make sure you don't turn off keyboard repeat (such as
"xset r off") anywhere.

If you don't do this, my guess is broken hardware.
