Thread: Weird keyboard/software behaviour (bug?)

  1. Weird keyboard/software behaviour (bug?)

    I have had so far 5 of my installations do this and have left a message
    on the Mandriva Forums. If you find that your keyboard is repeating
    characters repeatedly or that your software is behaving abnormally you
    may want to try to do a Ctrl-Alt-F1 and then Ctrl-Alt-F7. This will stop
    the repetition of unending characters from the keyboard. There does not
    seem to be any fix for this still.

    See the discussion on the forum:

    Unless someone has a fix for this already!

    I see that your forum thread is quite long now. It seems to be an issue
    with 2007 only, but 2007.0 or the Spring version? I haven't noticed it
    with 2007.0, but it seems to be fairly rare anyway. It may sound silly,
    but if there is a bug, I seem to attract them. At the Pokies even, my wife
    comes home with something, and I lose the lot.
