Adding the line to /etc/sysconfig/keyboard did nothing for me.

Found this in a "Tips/Tricks" thread:
Quote:
If you would like Num Lock to be switched on at boot-up add this to your rc.local:
Code:
for tty in /dev/tty[1-6]; do
 /usr/bin/setleds -D +num < $tty
done
Thanks Jon!

I tried both of these, i.e. the entry in the keyboard file and the one in the rc.local, but I still don't get the numlock on.

I am using FC3.

Any idea why they are not working please?

numlock

about setting the numlock on startup, i remember mandrake linux runs a service program at every boot..
i dont know what program it is, but i found one that should do the same.

here is the link:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...lease_id=61904

a readme file contains instructions on how to add it to system startup

Thumbs up NUMLOC

Here is what FINALLY worked for me I use Fedora core 3

open Emacs and type the following:

#include <X11/extensions/XTest.h>
#include <X11//keysym.h>

int main(){
Display* disp = XOpenDisplay(NULL);
if (disp == NULL) return 1;
XTestFakeKeyEvent(disp, XKeysymToKeycode(disp, XK_Num_Lock),
True, CurrentTime);
XTestFakeKeyEvent(disp, XKeysymToKeycode(disp, XK_Num_Lock),
False, CurrentTime);
XCloseDisplay(disp);
return 0;
}

save as: setnumlock.c

Since this is just a source file, you will need to compile it by pasting the following into a command shell in the same directory as this file you saved as setnumlock.c:

type: gcc -I/usr/X11R6/include -L/usr/X11R6/lib -o setnumlock setnumlock.c -lX11 -lXtst

type: cp setnumlock /bin/

Edit your /home/(your-login)/.bashrc file in emacs and put in the "setnumlock" command without quotes of course..

You should now be able to just log out and back in and NUMLOCK should be on..

I hope...

Typing IP-adresses also goes a lot faster and easier by the numpad.
Mathematic calculations also go a lot smoother.
In fact : That row of numbers on top of the keyboard is the one I could do without ; Clumsy , archa´c , retarded....
