There are 2 Typos in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/inet

// Logitech common definitions
partial hidden alphanumeric_keys
xkb_symbols "logitech_base" {

    key <I01> { [ XF86AudioMedia ] };
    key <I02> { [ XF86WWW ] };
    key <I10> { [ XF86AudioPrev ] };
    key <I15> { [ XF86Community ] };
    key <I16> { [ XF86ScrollClick ] };
    key <I19> { [ XF86AudioNext ] };
    key <I20> { [ XF86AudioMute ] };
    key <I21> { [ XF86VendorHome ] };
    key <I22> { [ XF86AudioPlay, XF86AudioPause ] };
    key <I24> { [ XF86AudioStop ] };
    key <I2E> { [ XF86AudioLowerVolume ] };
    key <I2F> { [ XF86AudioLowerVolume ] }; <--- double definition fails to load
    key <I30> { [ XF86AudioRaiseVolume ] };

// Logitech iTouch Internet Navigator Keyboard
partial alphanumeric_keys
xkb_symbols "logiciink" {
    include "inet(logicinc)"  <--- typo, should be logicink, fails to load

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

This bug still exists in FC6, but it looks like someone /tried/ to fix it...

for me, the volume down key works, but volume up and the "media" key don't work.

/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/inet has

// Logitech common definitions
partial hidden alphanumeric_keys
xkb_symbols "logitech_base" {

    key <I01> { [ XF86AudioMedia ] };
    key <I02> { [ XF86WWW ] };
 ------ snip -------
    key <I24> { [ XF86AudioStop ] };
    key <I2E> { [ XF86AudioLowerVolume ] };
    key <I2F> { [ XF86AudioRaiseVolume ] };
    key <I30> { [ XF86AudioRaiseVolume ] };
    key <I32> { [ XF86HomePage ] };
 ------ snip -------
    key <I6C> { [ XF86Mail ] };
    key <I6D> { [ XF86AudioMedia ] };

So both XF86AudioRaiseVolume and XF86AudioMedia appear twice.  I removed the I01
entry for the media key, and the I2F entry for the raise volume key, and they
both worked then.

Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, please, could you reproduce this bug with
the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX/INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
