Description Jeff Lane 2001-02-21 17:58:21 EST
The following keys do not work (these are the ones that I found so far)

In gnome terminal, rxvt,
Delete, End

In xterm
Insert, Delete

These keys do work in console.  In X, I get the ~ beep error.  Possibly
incorrect keymap?

locale says this:[root@jay linux-2.4]# locale
LANG=en_US
LC_CTYPE="en_US"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US"
LC_TIME="en_US"
LC_COLLATE="en_US"
LC_MONETARY="en_US"

LC_PAPER="en_US"
LC_NAME="en_US"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US"
LC_ALL=

/etc/sysconfig/keyboard says:

KEYBOARDTYPE="pc"
KEYTABLE="us"

XFree86.log says:(**) |-->Input Device "Keyboard0"

changed 
bash-2.04-17.src.rpmn
curses-5.2-7.src.rpm
termcap-11.0.1-7.src.rpm

to cope with rxvt's end and backspace settings
