Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 236388
numlock on at login with T42 and no way to turn it off
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:36 EDT
I'm sorry, but I really don't know where to file this. When I boot up, numlock
is off. When I log in, it turns on and I can't turn it off. I have to
Ctrl-Alt-F1 and then Alt-F7 back to get it to go off.
This is on my T42.
$ rpm -q gdm xorg-x11-drv-ati; uname -r; sudo grep -ir num /etc/X11/*
Binary file /etc/X11/X matches
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

Xorg.0.log after moving /etc/X11/xorg.conf out of the way
That's all of them, I believe.
Hi everyone, i face the same problem on my t43, however i found two ways of
getting around the problem, might be of help until the issue is resolved.
Firstly, numlock can be turned off by pressing [Shift]+[NumLock], even though
that makes no sense and the LED stays lit. Secondly, NumLock only locks to on if
you have a lan cable plugged in and your linux (in my case fedora core 6)
requests an IP adress while booting. unplugging the cable during bootup and then
replugging and requesting an IP adress after logging in works fine but feels
quite cumbersome :P
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:

doesn't happen again.
I no longer have this problem (F8).
