I have modified the keycode remapping table in drivers/tc/lk201-remap.c
to deliver PC compatible keycodes. Aim of this modification is easier
use of XFree86 on DECstations (with the standard PC-keyboard map) and
the possibility to use existing loadable national keymaps for i386.
In theory, this should work, in practice, it does not :-(.
I have encountered several problems when running the new remapping table
with a standard i386 us.kmap.gz:
- the "Alt Function" keys on an LK401 seem to deliver no keypress event
(same behaviour with the original DECstation mapping, so this
seems to be a generic problem. Does the LK401 need a particular
initialization to use these keys (which do not exist on an LK201)?
- When running in console mode, everything besides console switching
(because of the missing ALT-keycode) and activating NumLock (keypad
is always in cursor mode) works. In XFree86 the normal character
keys and the main keyboard number keys work fine, but cursor keys,
the Del/Insert/Pos1/End/etc. block and the numeric keyblock do not
work at all or deliver wrong keycodes.
I would be very grateful if somebody could give me a hint about the
reason for this behaviour, the modified lk201-remap.c is attached to
