Description Douglas D. 2006-02-13 21:20:07 UTC
Get messages like:

atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xd9 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e059 <keycode>' to make it known.

These are ACPI codes for battery powered wireless keyboards such as the Microsoft wireless natural keyboard. They will occur with any key presses on the keyboard from the command line when using the boot cd.


type from the command line ignoring the errors popping up

setkeycodes e05a 122
setkeycodes e001 121
setkeycodes e059 120

sets them to useless codes.

not sure why this was assigned to hardened as there is no evidence of hardened bugs.  reassigning to bug-wranglers so they can find out where to put these

There's not a hardened boot cd anymore.
