OK. I've found the place in the kernel where the fake raw codes are generated. It is in linux-2.6/drivers/char/keyboard.c.
W/o changing that table, there is no way to generate the codes that 2.4 generated for the four keys in question. OTOH, if I use 164, 166, 165 and 163 in atkbd.c, which are defined as KEY_PLAYPAUSE, KEY_STOPCD, KEY_PREVIOUSSONG and KEY_NEXTSONG in input.h, I get e0/22, e0/24, e0/10, e0/19 which xkb defines as <I22>, <I24>, <I10> and <I19>. Those four are used as desired by 33 of the keyboards defined in xkb/symbols/inet (in 4.3.0). I'm going to submit that change for atkbd.c. The XFree86 FAQ probably ought to mention that -model inspiron is not compatable w/ linux >= 2.5 and to use something like hp5xx instead. Ideally there should be an entry named something like linux26 covering all of the keys defined in 2.6's include/linux/input.h. That way all of the keys on any hot-plugged kb should work, w/o having to change one's xkb settings. Even better of course would be using the event interface instead of going raw to (linux-input-)keycode to (fake-)raw to (X-)keycode. Thanks for the help in deducing how this all works. -JimC _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://XFree86.Org/mailman/listinfo/devel
