Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 90146
Keyboard repeat rate changes after suspend
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:27 EDT
Description of problem:
After coming back from suspend, the keyboard repeat rate is extremely slow. I believe
this could be a kernel bug, or ACPI bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is using the latest updated 2.4.20-9 kernel.
Always reproducible on an Inspiron 8200 with Radeon card.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter suspend mode.
2. Come back from suspend.
Keyboard repeat rate is extremely slow. Both initiating the keyboard repeat and the
actual keyboard repeat rate itself is slow.
Keyboard repeat rate should be as it was before going into suspend: relatively fast.
well since the 2.4.20-9 kernel has no ACPI it's not possible to blame this one
on ACPI :)
you can change this rate with the kbdrate program; I'm not sure how to add this
to /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmscript properly to have it executed on resume
Thanks. At least I can manually return things to normal using this. But as you say it
would be better to add this to something that gets automatically called (or better yet, try
to fix the problem in the kernel or wherever it is where the keyboard repeat rate is
changed after coming out of suspend).
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
