I am trying to run an program on an HP-UX system with my displlay set to two differnet RH systems, one RH 8.0 and the other is RH Enterprise 3.0 Workstation.  The program will start and display correctly on both, but on the RH Enterprise 3.0 machine, the program ignores the state of the caps lock key, but holding down shift I am able to type in caps.  On RH 8.0, the caps lock key works correctly.  Any idea on where to look for the problem?

Do they have similar/same type of keyboards? What do you have for the keyboard InputDevice in /etc/X11/XF86Config on the respective systems? On the RH ES 3.0 WS, do you get an event for keypress/release of the Caps key.... as checked with xev... ?

I found the problem.  I had to add XkbDisable to the RH Ent 3 box's  XF86Config file.  Thanks!
