Keyboard mapping problems on the terminal screen
I am running CentOS release 5, for some reason in the terminal screen when I hit keys, a ^ shows up before the key. Also certain keys do not work like the Q and W key. However in the GUI desktop screen, I am able to type keys like normal without any issue.
Troubleshooting wise, I have rebooted the computer. Confirmed keyboard mapping in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard is correct. Confirmed key maps in /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/defkeymap.map is also correct.
