t23 keyboard problem
« on: December 05, 2011, 02:43:03 pm »
I am trying VL7.0 std gold live cd on my IBM T23.  Not all the keys are working properly.  Example-k=6.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Yeah, this is a problem simple to fix.  The live edition installs with num-lock activated. (In case you want to calculate how much money you will save not using Windows  ;D)

So any of the keys that have a secondary function of being a number pad will show up as numbers, + signs, etc.
To fix just hit the key combination that deactivates the num-lock.
On my acer it's Function+F11
