Description Stewart Adam 2008-08-07 20:18:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When using the command line (outside Xorg), I think the keyboard is incorrectly detected although this may not be the actual problem. In any case, the arrow keys don't function at all (cursor doesn't move, no output) and neither does the whole set of keys in between the keyboard and the numpad such as home/end/ or page up/down. I have to resort to turning off numlock and using those are the arrow keys, which does work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ctrl+Alt+F1
2. Try to use the arrow keys
Actual results:
Nothing happens (like the keys aren't detected or mapped)

Expected results:
Keys work

Bug #460550 describes a similar (the same?) problem.

I'm not using Rawhide but regular Fedora 8, and I have the same problem
after updating from kernel 2.6.25 to kernel 2.6.26. For me, hitting the
"Insert" key once, temporarily makes cursor keys etc. work. But only for
a limited time.

I think, the same problem. If the arrow keys works inside Xorg and not outside Xorg, it is not bug in bash. Probably it is the same as Bug #460550.
