This is cool guys! How difficult do we think it's going to be to make X
play nice with the apollo keyboards? Personally, I prefer the apollo
keyboards over the HP ones with the "weird" <esc> location (amongst
other things)... out of the 8 or so HP's that I have that I regularly
use, only one (lager) has a comfortable keyboard.
Now, given that only 2 of my HP's even have Apollo keyboard ports, how much
additional work would it be to attach a keyboard at say "dca0" or "dcm0"?
It looks as though, with some minor wiring, one could be hooked up to a
serial port fairly easily with the addition of a 12v power-pack...
ok, so call me a hack...
