Opensuse 11.2 console HOME END keys


just install opensuse 11.2 and notice that i cant use HOME, END keys in console over ssh, and cant find any anwser on forum or the internet.
i did have /etc/ from my last install opensuse 11.0 and try diff inputrc and was identical! anything else i can try?



What are the values for the \e1~, \e4~ keys in your inputrc? Would be something like that:
“\e1~”: beginning-of-line
“\e4~”: end-of-line


here is my inputrc:
pastebin - collaborative debugging tool

The Xorg version in 11.1 still uses the kbd driver while the one in 11.2 uses evdev. As a consequence, keyboard mappings are slightly different.

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log (on 11.1)

(II) LoadModule: “kbd”
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules//input/
(II) Module kbd: vendor=“X.Org Foundation”

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log (on 11.2)

(WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers ‘kbd’, ‘mouse’ or ‘vmmouse’ will be disabled.
(II) LoadModule: “evdev”
(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//input/
(II) Module evdev: vendor=“X.Org Foundation”

i dont use xorg on my opensuse 11.2
the HOME and END key doesnt work over ssh in console
any ideas for console?
