I don't know if this the right section for this or not...

I just did a reinstall of Gentoo and upon reboot after the install I found that SliM won't start LXDE, which is an issue for another post, and
when I enter to the letter "O" I get "^[[C" instead. Is this a kernel driver issue for the keyboard?

more likely a locale/keyboard layout problem. Unusual keyboard? menuconfig->Device Drivers->Input Device Support->Keyboards; Laptop keyboard? menuconfig->Device Drivers->X86 Platform Specific Device Drivers->

I'll give that a look. It is a laptop keyboard.
