Heh, was that a deliberate pun? ;-)
Erm, I think this has been covered heaps, but essentially 2.6.x needs an x86
keymap -- I simply changed my keymap to a generic x86 one, since I wasn't
going back to 2.4, but from what I've read here and elsewhere, telling your
system to ignore any lines setting your keymaps will make your keyboard
function in both kernels?
While you're at it, since you're using an Ultra10 like me, please let me
know if ALSA and the sun-cs4231 driver that comes with 2.6.9 works?
