Red face keymap string for NumLock


Hi,

I work with RH4 in runlevel 3 with trimmed version. I would like to
set some string value for NumLock key (as in case of functional keys).
Where I have to do this. I work only in console.

regards
vrangs

You should put that inside a file in /usr/share/keymaps, or elsewhere and use loadkeys to load the keymap file.
Look at other keymap files and try man keymaps to know how to write those files.

Indeed it is for console.
What did you put in your keymaps file? Did loadkeys complain?
