Media buttons dead, Again! [Solved]

Postby ReemZ » Sat Sep 25, 2010 19:24

OK, so after upping the kernel from .34 to .35 my keyboard worked again, including the media buttons.
Now, after another update a day 'n half ago, my media buttons are dead again, even xev won't see them!
What fscks me off proper is I can't even downgrade the kernel from -r5 to -r4 nae mere as it's not in the repos, so I can't even check to see if that's what caused the problem :evil:
Getting pretty bloody sick with buttons working for only a week or two then failing on me again after an update :evil:
Anyone got any idea what to do?

temper the tone a bit please. We didn't bump the kernel to just annoy you really.
:D
File a bug instead please.

You didn't? Hmm I thought you had dedicated at least one evening every week to pissing me off :mrgreen:
Guess I gotta learn to wait at least a day or two before posting a problem so I won't sound as pissed off :|
I'll file a bug in a day or two...

Who are you pissed off on here?

The manufacturer off the keyboard?
The Linux kernel team?
Us for pushing out a kernel version that was patched for a serious security issue?
Yourself for being hostile against all off named above?

Take a breath, file a bug.

Not so much pissed off at anyone in particular and didn't mean to sound that way, just frustrated that an old sore pops up again :(
I know, temper temper...

KDE or Gnome?

Try switching to a VT and back.
