I seem to have found a culprit somehow but don't know where it comes
from. 2.6.29 has hid_apple but that module failed to load for me.
modprobe -v told me that it tries to "insmod /lib/.../hid.ko pb_fnmode=2"
but that module doesn't like that parameter so it fails.
Now I'm wondering where that might come from. And strangely it seems to
have hooked itself into /etc/yaboot.conf:
Now I wonder
a.) how it actually ended up in there (though, not really that
interesting), but rather
b.) what the correct append option for 2.6.29 would be to switch to. I
do want to have my function keys work as normal function keys and not
have to press the fn additionally to get that.
Thanks - I guess that I found the append line as reasoning means that I
can close the bug report, though the issue isn't closed completely for
