oh freaking wow!!!

this just got weirder!!!

i haven't had the two-press thing again, but since you listed the status of the keys themselves, i decided to check just now...

numlock off = numbers
numlock on = cursor pad

we have two different behaviors here. please double check yours just in case. i just double-checked, my keypad is operating opposite the way it should be.

motherboard: intel dq45ek, most recent bios (mid august), numlock defaults to on in bios cmos setting.

just in case, i double-checked, my external keypad is hooked up to the laptop, not this - no conflicts there.

xorg is configured or default behavior, as is kde4.

this might be a xorg or kde issue. i just checked syscons. normal behavior there. nums only when numlock is on.

in kde system settings: "leave unchanged" is the enabled option.

if you have kde4 installed (or any other wm) please check under x for reverse behavior.

exactly. it might be a bit easier to understand if i explain it this way:

instance        |       num lock led    |       number keys working
--------------- | --------------------- | -------------------------
no key press    |       on              |       no
1st key press   |       on              |       no
2nd key press   |       off             |       no
3rd key press   |       on              |       yes
4th key press   |       off             |       no
5th key press   |       on              |       yes

(key press refering to the num lock key)


i just read your note here, and the following one about the long delays (kern/99538), and was able to duplicate the two-press thing.

amd64 here, under kde, and the keyboard is a compaq pos ps/2 via a generic mouse/kb dongle/adapter for usb i got on ebay from hong kong:

ukbd1: <vendor 0x13ba Generic USB K/B, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2> on usbus2 ums1: <vendor 0x13ba Generic USB K/B, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2> on usbus2

it seems that the press-twice scenario was only needed the first attempt. normal behaviour after that.

8.1-stable last cvsup/build:

hi there,

i have a very tiny num lock issue with ukbd on HEAD (amd64; r211393). in my
bios i have enabled the "boot with num lock enabled" feature. when i fire up
freebsd the num lock light on my keyboard is on. however the num lock keys
don't work. if i press the num lock button once nothing happens. if i hit it twice the num lock led goes off. to make the num lock feature work i have to
actually hit the num lock key thrice.

is this a known issue?
