Linux annoyance
 
With mandrake you can set in your startup file to enable numlock. But with redhat you don't have an option unless you want KDE. I started looking for some scripts or rpm's to enable numlock on boot. The scripts dont work and the rpm's were only intended for mandrake. I am running Red Hat 9. If someone could please point me in the right direction that would be cool.

Cheers :)

I think there's something you can do in your xf86config file to turn numlock on when you startx. Shoot, I can't think of it now though.

You just want NumLock on without having to start X? ...or are you wanting to use Gnome, IceWM, or what?

to turn on numlock on in x on redhat open XF86Config file and uncoment the part that talks about it it is in the begining of the file

What about turning it off in Manrdake? It's coming on just before my user prompt comes up. I start in Konsole mode right now.

Cool I will have a look. I would like it to come on before I start X. But thats cool if I can edit my xfree86 and it comes on with X.

To disable numlock in mandrake. All you have to do is disable the service called numlock on startup.
