Only the number pad keys? In other words, is it effectively
turning the numlock key on? Is the numlock LED lit? Check
/var/log for any related messages.
I don't have a solution for your problem but the amount of
keyboard and mouse related problems I have been seeing
* FC1, IMPS2 mouse goes crazy, rights itself after printing
a kernel error message about lost mouse sync. Found some
advice from Vojtech about this but it didn't fix the
problem in this case. Changed a constant in the input
handling layer which made the bug appear less frequently.
* RH8, PS2 keyboard, the keyboard works fine during boot
loader stage, but at some point during boot up it stops
working. No KVM and tried two different keyboards. When
it locks, caps lock is not lighting its LED at all, and
Num Lock acting strangely i.e sometimes you have to press
it three times for there to be a change in toggled LED
* FC1, PS2 keyboard, gnome-terminal, possibly console too.
Without caps lock being pressed, or the caps lock LED
being lit, alpha keys are in upper case, and here's the
strange bit, non alpha keys are rendered as their shifted
value. Setting caps lock on allows lower case letters.
Now that I write this, that sounds like a stuck shift
key. Will try another keyboard.
