Hi Christian: I am somewhat familiar with the problem with the altgr
numlock situation in the redhat distributions. I don't use redhat so
I'm not aware of the specific problem, or maybe I am. When you say
garbage characters do you in fact mean a specific character the '0'?
I am aware of that problem but not if it is anything else. This only
happens when you have a non-speakup keymap installed and the numlock
I have not been able to determine a way to get around the altgr '0'
problem without a fairly major rewrite of the way keys are handled in
the 2.4.x kernels. I am of course open to suggestions.
