Say, did any of you manage to use your external wired small USB
keyboards typing to /dev/tty1, the console, outside of Xwindows? Be
careful, as you might not be able to get back to Xwindows, and have to
hit the power button, as only [a-z] characters worked for me here on
Debian. I.e., you won't be able to type the "2" in
assuming you managed to login with a username and passwd that are all [a-z].
