FN keys don't work.....???? (dell 600m)


After installing Mandrake 10.0 on Dell 600m some of the FN keys no longer work. Anyone have a work around for this problem.

It seems that the FN+F2 still works for the wireless card and the brightness controls and the scroll lock but nothing else I think. The lid switch also does not work. ?? Not sure if the crt/lcd switch works, don't have something to try it with yet.

The 'eject' command in a console ejects the cd tray but not FN+F10..??

I would like to be able to use the volume keys, any suggestions?

Thanks

Is the module included with kernel 2.6.3?

Yes i think : i have a toshiba laptop and with toshiba and toshiba-acpi modules I have acess to the wole features of my computer under Mandrake 10. So I believe it's the same thing for a dell.

Try the dell module(s) : to load it (or them) at boot up add this line in your /etc/modules.preload or something likes that.

#/etc/modules.preload

the_name_of_the_dell_module

That's it.....

Jgf

Ps : before try modprobe -l | grep dell to the find the module name(s).
