Which model is it ( or rather, what's the PCI ID ) ?
Hardware character drawing is known broken on r3xx and newer and
radeonfb should use software there, apparently that didn't hapen so
I'd like to know why.

[keyboard curiosities]

That's a hack in the ukbd driver. I added code to translate keys to
PMF events for gdium, doing the same for Apple keyboards should be

I got the xmodmap thing to work once.  I stopped X and restarted, loading
my custom .xmodmaprc, but Pointer_Button2 and Pointer_Button3 events seem
to be ignored, even though 'xev' reports them as being sent (remapped
keycodes 95, 96 (F11, F12)).

Other interesting things reported by 'xev' is that all Fn-Fkey
combinations send keycode 8 (Mode_Shift) regardless of other modifiers
and the Cmd keys both send keycode 115 (Super_L), Shift-Option is
Meta_L, Fn-Option is Alt_R, and Fn-Shift-Option is Meta_R.
Fn-Shift-<embedded keypad> generates their numeric bindings.
