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
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.
