The level of support for ACPI, especially in terms of system monitoring,
varies enormously. IIRC, last time I tried ACPI couldn't report the
battery state on my machine.

What is and isn't supported, or what causes an oops, varies
semi-randomly from kernel version to kernel version. APM just works on
the IBM...

Yup. Didn't you?

They supply keycodes, vis:

! The "Internet" key panel on the left.
keycode 236  =  F13
keycode 178  =  F14
keycode 229  =  F15
keycode 230  =  F16
keycode 231  =  F17
keycode 232  =  F18

! The page left and right keys...
keycode 234  =  F19
keycode 233  =  F20

! The 'Fn' key.
! keycode 227  =  ???

Add that to your .xmodmap and load it.[1]


[1]  I use a somewhat hackup up programmers dvorak layout, which isn't
what you wanted to know. :)

If you stick a knife nine inches into my back and pull it out
three inches, that is not progress.  Even if you pull it all the
way out, that is not progress...
