Num Lock


I am running Mandrake 9.1. The numlock dæmon is running on startup. However, it only sets numlock on for terminal sessions (ie CTRL-ALT-F1 to F6). When in the X-Session (CTRL-ALT-F7) the numlock boots as off.

I note that the system saves an individual numlock setting for all seven sessions. You can see it flash on and off as you switch screens/terminals. I'm sure it did not do this in the past so I must have altered a setting. I've tried Mandrake and KDE Control Centres and cannot find anything.

Any ideas?

Under Control Center go to Peripherals-->keyboard and select the numlock on startup option.

Thanks. I was looking in LILO because it only seemed to change when I altered my login to automatic.

It's amazing what you can find when you look in the right place, isn't it?

For us CLI freaks, do you happen to know what file(s) are affected?
