fn keys

Has anyone gotten the 2 fn keys which do not output any keycodes to work? (F7 and F9) F9 at least shows up in dmesg [ 253.732780] atkbd serio0: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x86 on isa0060/serio0). [ 253.732785] atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e006 <keycode>' to make it known.

However using setkeycodes does not work for me, there is still no recognized input. - Blubbblubb (talk) 14:20, 12 April 2017 (UTC)


Has anyone tried linux-nvme (kernel power saving patches)? There are known stability issues with the SM951. My model is reported as PM951 by nvme-cli Tlvince. (talk) 19:06, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Yep, the 13.3 Xiaomi has a PM951 for sure... is it noticeable the power saving improvement with this patched kernel? Looks like SM951 problems have been specifically patched and reached mainline... Should we try this or has it any risk for our data or drive Manudroid19 (talk) 14:32, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm running the patches against 4.10.3 and am seeing ~1W reduction at idle. See benchmarks. Will update on any stability issues Tlvince (talk) 21:05, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
How do you measure the energy usage? I don't see such stadistics in tlp-stat... EDIT: I found out. Let's see if it improves. Manudroid19 (talk) 22:28, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

I think the wifi section shouldn't be removed, as it still concerns the LTS kernel as well as other distributions of arch. Antergos, for example, still ahs this bug. Manudroid19 (talk) 19:43 8 April 2017 (UTC)

Makes sense. Removed the notice. -- Tlvince (talk) 12:44, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
