Description Miloslav Trmac 2002-05-10 16:23:20 UTC
1) in section 3.13, the description of dead keys on the <tip> is completely 
bogus. Is it supposed to mean that "No dead keys" would disable Backspace key?!?
The example above the tip is better: dead keys, such as <keycap>acute</keycap>,
allow typing &aacute; (sorry for the HTML notation; bugzilla usually eats the 
characters) by typing <keycap>acute</keycap> <keycap>a</keycap>. They are 
called dead keys because they don't produce a character, but that doesn't mean 
that any key that doesn't produce a character is a dead key.

in section 3.14: Running gpm -B 321 is not what the user wants to do to switch 
left and right mouse button, because the setting is lost after a reboot. The 
right thing is to add `-B 321' to OPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/gpm.

This section of text has been removed from the Installation Guide. Changes will
be reflected in the next release.
