I have a VERY simular error

I have a VERY simular error... mine reads:

KDSKBENT: Invalid argument
failed to bind key 255 to value 2015

If this does not get answered by your post I will post another, maybe. I think I will go and post one in the hardware forum and see if I can find anyhelp. You might want to look there after I post mine. I will title it KDSKBENT: Invalid argument / failed to bind key 255 to value 2015 (well as much as that I can write down in the subject line.

Oh yeah... I am also running FC2 on my system... by the looks of KDSKBENT it looks like it could be a keyboard error. I am using a "microsoft natual keyboard pro". What keyboard might you be using?

Good luck to you and me both...

Cheers from another

I have the same error:

KDSKBENT: invalid argument
failed to bind key 255 to value 1791

I don't want to post on your new thread because as long as it's got 0 replies, it stays in the queue, so to speak.

Same Problem

I've got the same problem with KDSK#! I recieved this message after login via console. This message appear only with my new compiled 2.6.6-kernel under fedora core 2. with my old kernel there are no problems. i think the message appears, because i changed the default for native language support (NLS) while editing the .config with xconfig. This problem appears only, when changing from utf8 to iso8859-15.

best wishes, elf99

Here is what you do:

Edit /bin/unicode_start and comment out (or delete) 'dumpkeys |
loadkeys --unicode' and it is solved.

For reference, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=125133
