Hello everyone. I was so happy to get my new Dell Inspiron 1100 the other day, and even more happy to take off Windows and start with Linux Mandrake. I was reading the Dell forums and one person said 9.1 handled the built-in broadcom adapter, so I went to 9.1 (I've use 9.0 on my desktop).
Everything went smoothly and everything was recognized including the ehternet card. I then rebooted and tried to login in X, it wouldn't accept my password. I booted to the text login (localhost kogin
and tried there (after other things). An interesting thing happened, my keys are messed up. Linux decided to truncate the keyboard and have a num pad where the letters are so my username stampede96 was entered as sta0*ede and my password as well is not correct.
I wondering if it was something off about 9.1, so I took that off and went to 9.0. It does the same thing. Does anyone have any idea how to get my keyboard back?
