As this problem is going to be resolved, we should start think about getting correct translation between kernel and X.

Proposed patch for the old keyboard driver to pass keycodes 128-16383 (128-255 with old Xi) using "Extended MEDIUMRAW" encapsulation: bug 11545

Mapping work-in-progress. One table and set of scripts providing all needed tables. Some keys still need discussion.

* Proposed mapping table between kernel and X: http://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/sbrabec/keyboards/input_linux_map_fixed.txt

* Proposed logical categories of keys (to help understanding them): http://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/sbrabec/keyboards/keymap_editor/keys.txt

* Scancode scripts for kernel (generated from X symbols/inet and table above): http://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/sbrabec/keyboards/scancode_tables/

* Proposed code snippet to evdev_key.c driver (generated from the table above): http://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/sbrabec/keyboards/evdev_key_c_table.txt

* Proposed X keycodes/evdev for evdev driver (generated from the table above): http://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/sbrabec/keyboards/keycodes_evdev

* Proposed common extended basic keymap for X: http://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/sbrabec/keyboards/symbols_evdev

* Proposed X keycodes/inet for RAW and SOFTRAW drivers (generated from X symbols/inet and table above): http://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/sbrabec/keyboards/keycodes_inet
