Since my old Vaio laptop has a broken key, I decided to get a USB keyboard for it. I have been using a USB mouse successfully for a while.
However I have a problem with keyboard rollover, meaning I get duplicate characters when typing quickly. Example: Depress "a" -- a Depress "b" -- b Release "a" Depress "c" -- cb So typing "questions" quickly tends to say "questioins". I am having to type this very gingerly and still doing lots of backspaces! My question is: is this something I can tweak in FreeBSD? (I can't see anything under kbdcontrol). Is it a bug in FreeBSD? Or have I just bought a useless keyboard? System information: - Sony Vaio PCG-C1F - FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE - Packard Bell PB-KB400 USB "Night glow" keyboard (I didn't want the glow but it was the only small USB keyboard in stock locally :-) Feb 20 13:38:14 vaio /kernel: ukbd0: USB Multimedia Keyboard , rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2, iclass 3/1 Feb 20 13:38:14 vaio /kernel: kbd1 at ukbd0 Feb 20 13:38:14 vaio /kernel: uhid0: USB Multimedia Keyboard , rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2, iclass 3/1 - After inserting the keyboard, I enable it using #!/bin/sh kbdcontrol -k /dev/kbd1 </dev/console kbdcontrol -l /usr/share/syscons/keymaps/uk.cp850.kbd (it would be nice if both keyboards would work together, as my external mouse and internal pointing device do, but I can live with that) Any helpl much apprerciataed, plelase copy me direcetlyl on any repely!
