hi,
was that a typo below, as in 2 tb?
Indeed Dr dos does have an approximately 2 gb limit for the primary dos
partition. this dell laptop has a disk size of about 8 gig, so we
partitioned the rest into amounts smaller than 3 gig, since my best
understanding is that it can swing 4 gig. However the first partition its d:
drive technically has no allocation units according to Dr dos 703's edition
of chkdsk. the other two partitions e and f are just fine though.
Yes I do realize partition magic is still legal, but not so sure about its
availability free for dos, because its new owners state as of July 2011 they
are no longer offering partition magic at all. There is a link for a free
partition magic on the partition wizard site, the replacement product for
partition magic, but it is not directing me clearly in lynx.
Still I will check out offerings you present here. your note gives me an
idea, perhaps shifting the primary dos partition slightly so it is closer to
that 2 gig window, which is why no data loss is important.

OK. What packages were upgraded? The log in /var/log/dpkg should help
you here. Obviously, look for any packages related to the keyboard.

What sort of computer is this?

tal% apt-cache show gok
N: Can't select versions from package 'gok' as it is purely virtual
N: No packages found

(Note: I'm running wheezy)

You could consider upgrading to wheezy, it will be the new stable in a
few months anyway
