Description Vladimir Kolpakov 2002-09-14 06:12:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010914

Description of problem:
loadkeys -s still been able to erase keyboard strings in the kernel,
but there is no way to load new strings descriptors anymore.

How reproducible: 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.dumpkeys > /tmp/default_keys
2.loadkeys -s
3.loadkeys ru
4.dumpkeys > /tmp/ru_keys
5.See difference in near bottom part, just before compose-s list.
6.copy loadkeys binary from mandrake "consoletools" package.
7.run mandrake's loadkeys with the same keymap and see difference.

Actual Results:  linux console is non-functional anymore for national people,
and products with extensive using of keyboard midifiers.

Expected Results:  strings must be overwritten

Additional info:

Result of dumpkeys with custom keymap table,
loaded by mandrake's loadkeys:
        shift   control alt     keycode 126 = AltGr_Lock      
keycode 127 =
string F1 = "\033[[A"
string F2 = "\033[[B"
string F22 = "\033[36~"
string F101 = "\033[7^"
string F102 = "\033[8^"
string F103 = "\033[5B"
string F104 = "\033[5A"
string F105 = "\033[5D"
string F106 = "\033[5C"
string F107 = "\033[2;5~"
string F108 = "\033[3^"
string F109 = "\033[3$"
string F110 = "\033{7~"
compose '!' '!' to '?'
