Description of problem:
Hi ! On several machines where RedHat 8.0 is recently installed, when I type
the key "Alt Gr" I obtain the character 0 (zero).
This fault occurs i.e. with these keyboards profiles : fr-latin1 an us.
The same distribution installed on my portable (Packard Bell) has no problem.
RedHat 7.3 installed in the same material had no problem.
Thanks for help !
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.type Alt-Grey touch (with numlock active)
Actual Results: I obtain 0 on screen
Expected Results: Nothing
Default appears when numlock is active
Table used : fr-latin1 an also us
FYI see bug #76897 that reports an identical problem.
This is not a bug in termcap (see bug #76897).
The console (a replacement for a real console) does not read termcap/terminfo
Only an application running in the console/terminal/terminal-emulator can (but
does not need) to read termcap/terminfo. For instance midnight-commander running
in the console reads (via ncurses-library or slang-library) termcap/terminfo
Your issue could not be reproduced in FEDORA CORE 4 (using font 'default8x16').
