ive been having this problem for a while but never thought about
posting it: many of the keyboard commands dont work in my minix (under
vmware). for example, the mined manual tells me that using "CTRL-J" I
can go to a specific line but that doesnt work
also, i wanted to get familiar with emacs but most of the commands dont
work as i expect
does that have to do with the fact i have a german keymap active?

please help,
