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.

I built xorg-x11-server- which should be in the next joyride.
