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

Hello everyone and thanks SOOOO very much for reading this message.

I have seen an error message that does not seem to be bothering my FC2 installation at all but I would still like to know about it and fix it if possible. The error message I get is as follows:

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

I have no idea what this is and I know there is some find that I can display to help with this in this post but I have no idea what that file maybe be.

If you can point me to which file I can display in here to help and as well if you can direct me to what the error message is, I would be very grateful.... I will even be your best friend... (not sure how that best friend popped in my head. I was 12 maybe when I last used it... EEEK thats 22 years ago.)

anyhow thanks for everything, everyone on this whole site is incredible and very kind. Of all the postings I have seen, I have only seen one person who seems a bit rude. The linux community is FAAAAR nicer then any other computer community I have witnessed.

Cheers to you all and thanks...

hi Kevin,

I've noticed the same message on my boot and shutdown. Did you resolve this issue? If not, ping me and perhaps we can figure it out together.

Well I get also the same kind of error since a while.. I also keep having problem where my computer gets stuck :-(.

So I am naturally wondering whether it has to do with that. But in some way I don't think so.

See you

This seems like some sweet problem in Fedora. Yesterday my FC2 machine (acting as a web server) went down all of a sudden. When I rebooted I noticed that error during boot and then it popped up once I logged in again. It be sweet if anyone even knew what this was. Or if this is even a problem and then how to fix it!

Thanks for everyones help....

If somebody comes up with a solution I'm sure there would be many people who would be grateful.

Well I'm going to do some hunting around.

I have had the same problem with my core 2 installation.

what I did is to comment out the line
dumpkeys | loadkeys --unicode
in /bin/unicode_start
and it worked out fine

Worked like a charm, glad I don't have to see that error anymore.

Thank you
