Comment 2 Vladimir 2007-01-22 14:42:22 EST
just re-installed FC 5 and under 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp kernel fn button works. Will update tomorrow after updating it to newest FC5 to verify that somewhere in those updates fn key stoped working.
Comment 3 Vladimir 2007-01-22 19:30:05 EST
Ok, I confirmed it's a kernel issue. I only updated kernel to 2.6.18-1.2257.fc5smp and fn key stoped working. The issue carried over to FC 6. I'm sorry I can't say exactly where in the kernel development fn key stoped working. Well, I hope this info helps you find and fix the issue.
