Description of problem:
On my laptop (Compaq Presario 1500T) whenever I try to log in, linux does not
recognize the enter key. If I use an external keyboard to log in, the laptop
enter key will function properly within the terminal window and Xwindows, but it
will not let me press enter to log in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: cannot use the enter key to enter my user and password information
Expected Results: press "enter" to submit the username and password
Odd. The only think I can think is that some quirk of the laptop keyboard trips
up the keyboard/terminal driver.
L.S., I have the same problem using RH73 on a Compaq Evo N1000v; any chance
there's a solve / workaround at this moment?
a) using RH73 with an external keyboard (via PS/2) I was able to use
the 'enter' key
b) having installed RH80 just yet, I am able to log on without problems
(Case solved for me)
