Advice About The Zkbdd Driver On Pdaxii13 ...
« on: July 26, 2007, 04:17:53 pm »
Hi, good day.

Recently I updated my Z to pdaXii13, I have installed the Zkbdd (driver for IR keyboards).

The drivers works in test mode, but when I launch it in normal mode it does not do anything.
I thought that perhaps it was a problem with the Palm driver config file but I tried with the other drivers and I got the same result. Besides I searched on the forums and I found that another user got the same problem with other IR model keyboard.

I will really appreciate any advice about this, I do not know what could be wrong.

Best Regards,
Daniel.

Hi !

I checked up the Zkbdd Users guide, mmm but it's funny, the document mention that the keybdev module is already loaded for new Zaurus like C1000 or C3100 but if you check the kernel version you will get just "2.4", the point is with the minor version, I guess that pdaXii13 uses a <2.4.20.

I guess that because the problem with the zkbdd was solved when I loaded the keybdev module.

Thanks a lot

pdaXii13 is using 2.4.20 kernel.
The documentation for zkbdd is assuming that keybdev module is automatically loaded which is not always the case unless the hotplug scripts are not updated to do it.
