Turning auto-repeat back on

Turning auto-repeat back on

Occasionally, the auto-repeating of characters ceases to function
on one of the virtual consoles. I've entering reset at the prompt,
killing the agetty process and restarting it but all to no avail.

stty -a on the "broken" vc shows exactly the same result as on
fully-functioning vc's. The only way I can turn the repeat back on
is to reboot.

I've had this problem with all the kernels I've used (1.0.8, 1.1.59,
1.1.89, 1.2.0-1.2.5). Is there any solution short of rebooting?
Is there a new version of agetty that I should download? (I'm using
the version that came with Slackware 1.2).



1. Keyboard auto-repeat rate.

Hi there,

I have really searched hard!  But I can't seem to find any documentation
on how to adjust my keyboard's repeat rate.  I know that there are two
parameters: delay before autorepeat and delay within repeats.  But for
the life of me I can't determine exactly which program takes these two

I am using a Sun IPX with X11R6.

I would be madly happy if some kind soul informed me that it is something
as simple as adding an entry in my .xsession file!!
