I am not sure. the only versioning of kdrive i see is
xserver-kdrive-imageon_1.2.0-r6.1 I am not sure if this is the xserver
version or the kdrive version.
Is there a newer kdrive for the c7x0 models.
My problem is that a freshly installed system maps keys fine. I have
even exported the working keymap for later use. Afterwards the xserver
mysteriously (?) stops recognising the Fn key. Even reapplying the
working exported keymap doesnt help. This mysterious behaviour happens
after a few reboots or after installing some apps. I was hoping that
someone would know what the problem is. I searched in the oesf forums
and the only referenece i could find is to contact the mailing list
because it is a known problem and a fix exists.
