Current Issues

Major Issues:

  • NONE.

Medium Issues:

  • S-video TV-out very probably doesn't work (untested)
  • ExpressCard state unknown (untested, probably works)

Trival Issues:

  • Hardware Mute state not reflected in mixer
  • No on-screen display of magic keys
  • Back and Forwards do not make Firefox move (Actually, these keys are a Royal PITA because of their [mis-]placement).
  • Fn-Space does not 'zoom' to stretched 640x480 (how to recognise this key sequence?)
  • Suspend must be manually enabled in /etc/defaults/acpi

  • Num Lock non-functional: xmodmap -e 'keycode 77 = Num_Lock'

  • Accelerometer is not used to park hard-disk

*ejected*

==== Performance ===

$ which glxgears | xargs strings | grep benchmark | xargs glxgears
4913 frames in 5.0 seconds = 982.508 FPS

Hidden magic keys?

These are sequences when pressing Fn+$key does not produce a keycode, meaning that it's being magically eaten! (But where to?).
