This may be an RTFM but I've grepped the man pages on my blfs system
for numlock and only find references on using numlock as a key
modifier.  Same thing in the documentation I downloaded from  I also recompiled the numlockx utility I have been using
on my host system (under 3.3.6) but it doesn't work under 4.2.1.

I had thought that 4.2.1 might have it's own option for setting the
numlock on when X starts, but I don't find one in the

So where do I look ?
