Description Alexey Starinsky 2003-09-02 09:28:05 UTC
I just tried to move cursor at console mc (on tty), it runs very s_l_o_w_l_y 
compared to another linux distro. (When I press it frequently, it runs much 
more fast)
My kernel is vanilla-sources 2.4.21. 
May be, there is a workaround of this probleb and that is not bug, but I could 
not find any docs about "how-to-change a keyboard repeat rate".

BIOS settings are OK. 
(I have no problems neither in Win2K nor MDK9.1)

Reproducible: Always

You can set the keyboard repeat rate in X with the xset command, eg 

xset r rate <delay> <rate>

you can set it in the console with kbdrate, eg

kbdrate -r <rate> -d <delay>

not a bug, so setting as INVALID.
