Hello, I am running the 20081219-akita altboot console version. I went that route because there seemed to be a keymap issue on the x11 image. So I was running the altboot console version and everything was working fine but when I installed gpe-* to get the gui stuff I ended up with the same problem. Namely rather important buttons like function and escape aren't working. Can anybody either tell me how to fix the problem or suggest a better version to use?

Also, whatever tskeys is totally dogging the machine and I have to kill it when ASAP after booting. Are there any suggestions for fixing that?

Open a terminal. Type "chvt 1" to go to the vt console. Then you have two chances: Degrade xorg-kdrive-fbdev to version 1.3.0.0 (available e. g. in my feed) or write a custom keymap (I tried it but I failed to map Fn and set autorepeat). See discussion in angstrom-distro-devel@linuxtogo.org and angstrom-distro-users@linuxtogo.org. It seems that fix was already found.

Nobody debugged it yet. Killing it is the only work-around.

For tskesy, in Ubuntu, you could comment out a block of maybe 8 or so lines in /etc/init.d/zaurusd that starts tskeys to prevent it from starting in the first place.

Note that it also applies to zubuntu distros- same problem. It is not distro specific.
