Description Nicolas Mailhot 2002-12-05 09:38:29 UTC
The speakup patch included in recent Red Hat kernels messes up <ALT-GR> key

This is a major key on many european keybords. For example on a french keyboard
you need it to access <~>, <#>, <{>, <[>, <|>, <`>, <\>, <^>, <@>, <]>, <}>.

The bug occurs both on the console and in X. While not systematic (i.e not for
each key strike), it *will* occur during any meaningful user activity.

It was first reported in NULL, went into 8.0, and was propagated to Red Hat 7.0,
7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 via Red Hat errata.

There has been no public Red Hat activity on this bug since august 2002.

This is the 7.1 specific bug report.
