Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2005-02-19 14:51:20 EST
After the setkeycodes commands, what is the output of (showkey -s) and (showkey
-k) when run on the console?
Comment 2 sangu 2005-02-19 23:35:52 EST
               Hangul / Hangul_Hanja
* showkey -s   0xf2   / 0xf1

               Hangul               / Hangul_Hanja
* showkey -k   keycodes 123 press   / keycodes 122 press
               keycodes 123 release / key codes 122 release
Comment 3 Miloslav Trmač 2005-02-20 05:06:03 EST
It seems that the keycodes for Hangul and Hangul_Hanja (123/122) are reversed,
Hangul should be, from looking at /usr/include/linux/input.h, keycode 122;
but that's probably not the reason why xev doesn't show the keys.

On the other hand, looking at /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/keycodes/xfree86, the
keycodes should be 121/122; maybe I just don't understand XKB well enough.

Anyway, the keys seems to be set up correctly enough on the console, so keys
not showing up with xev should be solved within X.

Please report this problem directly to X.Org by filing a bug report

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that
become available for consideration in future updates.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2005-05-17 01:42:58 EDT
It's been over a month since our request for this to be reported to X.Org
and nobody has provided a URL for us to track.  I assume the problem has
been resolved in an update, and nobody is interested in Red Hat tracking
this any further.

If the problem still exists however, and you do want Red Hat to track it
follow the instructions in comment #4 above and set the status back to

Closing bug "CURRENTRELEASE", and assuming the problem is fixed due to
lack of feedback/response.
