At my Sony Vaio SZ2M/B the FN key does not work, too. Kernel 2.6.17-7 worked, but not any later kernel at this time.

Same here with my VGN-T2XP running latest Edgy.

As in bug #62697, Fn keys work with PgUp and PgDown but don't with
brightness, etc.

Same here for my Vaio VGN-S260. Fn-keys work properly under Dapper.

I posted this same bug. Didn't see this thread first. No Fn key combinations for brightness and sound, but works fine for PgUp, etc.

Ben, this is another thing hit by the acpi_bus_register change. I've got a patch here.
