Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 64760
dead keys; gpm -B 321

1) in section 3.13, the description of dead keys on the <tip> is completely
bogus. Is it supposed to mean that "No dead keys" would disable Backspace key?!?
The example above the tip is better: dead keys, such as <keycap>acute</keycap>,
allow typing á (sorry for the HTML notation; bugzilla usually eats the
characters) by typing <keycap>acute</keycap> <keycap>a</keycap>. They are
called dead keys because they don't produce a character, but that doesn't mean
that any key that doesn't produce a character is a dead key.
in section 3.14: Running gpm -B 321 is not what the user wants to do to switch
left and right mouse button, because the setting is lost after a reboot. The
right thing is to add `-B 321' to OPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/gpm.
This section of text has been removed from the Installation Guide. Changes will
be reflected in the next release.
Thanks again for the feedback,
