Hi

Installed SLES10 on an old notebook without any problems.  Was working fine. Restarted the machine and now I can't use the keypad to type in my login details in the GUI.  I can switch to the terminal and use the keyboard to type in my login details so I know there's no problem with the keyboard.  Any help would be most useful

Did you change anything regarding your locale, your keyboard mapping, languages, anything? This might be related to incorrect keyboard mapping, and inability to login because the characters are not recognized by the system.

You can stop your gdm (change to runlevel 3 by running 'init 3') and run 'startx' as the user. Do you still have a problem with the keyboard?

This is a known issue with SLES 10 you should consider upgrading to SLES / SLED 10 SP1 immediately.

SLES 10 SP1 has a different method to address the keyboard also fixed soem memory hungry processes etc. I'd strongly recommend the immediate upgrade to SP1

I installed SLES10 SP1.  (That was what i was working with).  Didn't change any keyboard mapping.
Did a reinstall.
Was able to use to login.
Rebooted
Stuck at the Login screen again unable to use the keyboard.  The mouse works fine.
