Hi, I'm having a problem that I can't seem to find an answer too. I'm a total newb and decided I'd like to learn to use linux. I chose slackware because I figured it would teach me more than mandrake but be a bit easier than Gentoo. Anyway my problem is that NumLock, CapsLock, and ScrollLock all lock up the system when I press them. Every single other button works. I'd be gratefull for any help.

oh and the keyboard is USB.

Thanks

Did ya search Google?

One dude had a similar problem with a Compaq keyboard...swapped it for a PS2 and fixed his problem.

Have you simply tried another keyboard? prefereably PS2....

I'm kind of stuck with USB since the ps/2 ports are dead on that board. I have searched all over google and so far haven't found anyone with the exact same problem. Maybe I'll just have to suffer thru with none of those keys. pry them out so I don't accidently hit them or something.

EDIT: I downloaded knoppix just to see if it had the same problem. My Kb works perfectly under it. Maybe someone knows where to change keyboard settings in Slackware?
