Using Terminal and Write to test a B4 XO with a Spanish keyboard (Peru):

  • Cursor down key acts as a return/enter
  • Cursor up has no response
  • Cursor left has no response
  • Cursor right has no response
  • Alt gr key behaves as cursor left
  • Alt key has no response (or sends strange meta keys to Terminal)
  • >< special key has no response
  • fn key has no effect

None of these issues on joyride-2174

I'm pretty sure this will be related to the Fedora 9 evdev update that went into 2200. evdev on my own Gentoo system behaves in this way with evdev keyboard (down = enter, up = print screen, etc), and it looks like the same bugs have now entered Fedora.

I downgraded to xorg-x11-drv-evdev-2.0.1-1.fc9.i386.rpm on 2203 and the keys are back (magnifier, down key...)

I'm working on this. evdev is not loading due to an ABI mismatch. We need to resync the X server with F9, and that requires me fixing a GLX bug too. Should be done this afternoon.
