Description of problem:
The FN keys on laptops are not working in the 2.6.12 kernel series.
Sep 20 23:22:35 morpheus kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xf9 on isa0060/serio0).
Sep 20 23:22:35 morpheus kernel: atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e079 <keycode>' to make it known.
Sep 20 23:22:36 morpheus kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0xf9 on isa0060/serio0).
Sep 20 23:22:36 morpheus kernel: atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e079 <keycode>' to make it known.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use one 2.6.12 kernel series
2. Punch any FN+Key combination - example, sound volume or screen light
Yes, I know that sound volume keys can be defined on gnome keyboard shortcuts,
but the screen contrast only work on 2.6.11.
Mass update to all FC4 bugs:
An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel (184.108.40.206). As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.
Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.
Not an issue anymore on latest kernels. Closing the bug.
