Subject: console-setup: inittab's kbrequest doesn't work
Date: Sun, 12 Apr 2009 15:38:41 +0100
Package: console-setup
Version: 1.30
Severity: normal

With console-setup, on the console pressing
	<either Alt key> + <up arrow>
generates ^[[A without triggering a kbrequest.

With the same setup, Alt+left and Alt+right and Alt+<F-key> are still
working to switch between virtual terminals.

kbrequest is configured in /etc/inittab:
  # Action on special keypress (ALT-UpArrow).
  #kb::kbrequest:/bin/echo "Keyboard Request--edit /etc/inittab to let this work."
  kb::kbrequest:/bin/su - mail -c "fetchmail -f /etc/fetchmail/fetchmailrc"


Regards,
Steve
