Problem
When connecting a serial interface adapter to a
server running Linux Red Hat or SLES, the
numeric keypad keys on a PC keyboard do not
map to VT100 emulation under the Linux shell.
Using the numeric keypad with the vi text editor
causes function characters to appear instead of
numbers.
The video resolution is distorted.
Solution
Use the "printenv" command to show the TERM
assigned under Linux. It can be matched appropriately
with other termcap entries by editing the profile or
setting the TERM = "ansi". For PC keyboards, ANSI is
the most compatible emulation.
Edit you /etc/inittab as:
s0:2345:respawn:sbin/agetty -h ttyS0
115200, 9600 ansi
Where ttyS0 is the serial device name where the serial
interface adapter is connected. Then as a shell prompt,
enter init q, or reboot the system.
For more information, see the Connection Length Table
("Connection length
requirements" on page 45).
