Comma key doesn't work


My comma key acts like a backspace key in X when I use xdm instead of gdm as my displaymanager. It's pretty annoying because I found I like evilwm much more than gnome and kde. I am running on an IBM T30 laptop.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Unhappy backspace key

I have a similar problem except my 'l' key acts as a backspace key. I am also using xdm (SuSE 9.0)

This is only when I log into a terminal. Also, ksplash, konqueror and SuSEWatcher all generate signal 11 crashes so this could be symptomatic of a larger problem.

Working from the server workstation gives me no problems.
