 I put the below message in redhat mailing list and group but no
hints! Probably it is not Redhat specific. Any ideas to fix this

You're right, that is a weird problem.  The only thing I can think of
is that perhaps there's some kind of a keyboard driver issue.  Could
you try typing your password at the login screen to see if it looks

This may sound dumb, but if you have a spare keyboard lying around,
try it.  If this is a laptop you're talking about, then triple-check
all of the different function buttons on it.

Since you can log in under X, perhaps you can modify the appropriate
config file and tell it which keyboard driver to use.  I have no idea
how to do this, but I'm sure you can find that information somewhere.



1. Very weird login problem

I am ruinning a redhat linux server with 2.2.14 kernel and ip_masq.
I had it running for 5 months now, without a hitch.. Until now..
When i try to log in at the console or via telnet, it says login incorect.
So i thought passwords were messed up..
But when in log into linuxconf or FTP, the passwords work ok.
So what is going on? It is realy anoying me, cause I CAN'T LOG IN TO MY OWN

Plz help? What am i looking for? suggestions?

I'd hate to have to reinstall it.. grr
