strange keymap/vt probs after exiting X
Firstly, congrats on the debian sparc distro - the only problem I had
while installing this on a pair of sparc classics was the xsun /dev/fb
problem which I note was fixed in a later version than the one on my CD.
I'm having a strange problem wrt X and (I'm assuming) keymaps. The
situation is this:
I run xdm, I log in, everything is fine including the ctrl-alt-F? for
changing virtual terminals. When I log out and return to the xdm login
screen however, the crtl-alt-F? keys don't change vts. As far as I can
tell, everything else is fine: I can still log in, I can check with xev
that the right keycodes are still being generated - the only difference
that I notice is that teh crtl-alt-F? key combo doesn't work. I have to
kill xdm to get back to being able to change vts.
The exact same symptoms exist when I run X manually on the command line
like so: "X -query otherhost -deferglyphs 16", when the first session
ends and I return to the xdm login prompt the chvt keystrokes don't
I'm currently just using startx and adding the "-terminate" option to X
but this solution is suboptimal.
Has anyone come across something similar or at least has more of an idea
how to debug something like this ? An strace didn't show up any major
differences as far as I could see but I wasn't really sure what
specifically to look for.
Thanks for any help.
