Time Event
Really irritating keyboard behavior.
I'm having a big problem with my brand-shiny-new Toshiba Satellite 2400 laptop, set up with Debian woody. The keyboard works fine at the console, but as soon as I switch into X it gets "bouncy" and sporadically doubles letters, so that "dollar" is likely to come out looking like "ddoolaar", which irritates me to the point that I would describe the machine as unusable.

I'm assuming, since it works fine at the terminal, that there is some way to configure X (4) into sanity. Anybody know what it might be?

Update: Problem fixed, with many thanks to this guy and his Tecra 9000. Hooray, community!

Current Mood: frustrated
From one computer to another
I'm installing linux on a new hard drive and plan to move all my files from the existing hard drive to the new one.

How would I go about moving the user names/passwords from one place to another? (what files should I copy over for this?)

Also, the big question. MySQL. Is there any way to copy the old hard drives mysql data to the new hard drive? (raw files.. ) ?
I don't have proper backups of the databases and want to copy the raw files, which I assume is possible.

So, any tips regarding these few questions would greatly be appreciated.

(i had a bad upgrade problem from mandrake 8.2 to 9.0... messed up my fs...)

..enter new hard drive.
