New to Vector here; think it's pretty slick....
But haven't got past square 1 because of the following problem:
The keyboard repeat rate.
I just fresh-loaded Vector 5.8 on an oldish K6-II 500MHz box with 128MB RAM. I immediately noticed that the keyboard repeat function was WAY too sensitive. As in, you can barely type your username without repeating all the letters 47 times--never mind passwords.
"No problem," said I, "I'll just mosey over to this Keyboard Settings dialog and change things the way I want them." Accordingly, I cranked the Delay all the way up and the repeat rate all the way down.
No effect. This is bad
I have tried several different keyboards, rebooted repeatedly, and looked at the BIOS for some way to change this in the firmware, which there isn't. I have tried manually adjusting the Typematic rate with
xset r rate 195 35/[code] Also, I have booted this same box into a Puppy live CD with no such keyboard-repeat difficulties. The only solution I have found is to turn off repeat entirely, which is not acceptable for day-to-day use.
Problem doesn't show up in a console login, only in X.
Any ideas would be appreciated. I really like Vector.
Thanks in advance,
