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 !


Regards, Francois

FYI see bug #76897 that reports an identical problem.
Comment 2 Petr Raszyk 2005-09-01 05:41:07 EDT
This is not a bug in termcap (see bug #76897).
The console (a replacement for a real console) does not read termcap/terminfo
database.
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
database.

Your issue could not be reproduced in FEDORA CORE 4  (using font 'default8x16').
