[Solved] "fn" keys and backports kernels (asus-nb-wmi)

Postby Aalexeey » October 28th, 2013, 7:26 pm

I was waiting for a new linux kernel, to get proper Qualcomm Atheros (not Atheros) driver for my network adapter, but I have no "fn" keys working now. The screen brightness is not adjustable too, now.

Kernel 3.2.46-1+deb7u1 (stable) & new stable
Code: Select all
root@asus-q400a:/home/xxxxxx# modprobe asus-nb-wmi
root@asus-q400a:/home/xxxxxx#

Kernels 3.12.6-2~bpo70+1 & 3.10.11-1~bro70+1 & 3.10.5-1~bro70+1 & 3.9.6-1~bro70+1 (wheezy-backports)
Code: Select all
root@asus-q400a:/home/xxxxxx# modprobe asus-nb-wmi
ERROR: could not insert 'asus_nb_wmi': Invalid argument
root@asus-q400a:/home/xxxxxx#

Any suggestions?

Re: "fn" keys are not functioning with backports kernels

So 3.11..../3.12....~bpo70+1 nothing o.k. except volume and screen brightness. In addition "conservative" for CPU is not available too, all PCs I have (cpufreq-info, only powersave and performance are possible), the only solution is disable intel-pstate driver (GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet intel_pstate=disable").
