On Thursday 31 October 2002 19:02, you spake thusly:
> I have a Sony Vaio Laptop and I used the default US keyboard.
> Everything works fine. To get the special keys to work on the Vaio
> you need to load a kernel module CONFIG_SONYPI, under character
> devices towards the bottom on make menuconfig. The usual

> Documentation/sonypi.txt. For power issues you have to load ACPI

> web site: http://acpi.sourceforge.net/
> In order to activate ACPI in the kernel you have to choose Prompt for

> experimental. Which model of Vaio do you have? Good luck.
Thanks. You are a lifesaver!
