Hi all,

How can i get a Sun type 6 keyboard working under xorg? I've had a
look through the list archives but can't quite work out what I need to
do. I'm running a fresh 6.0 install on a Sun Ultra 10, and at the
moment I've got the following in my xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier  "Keyboard1"
    Driver      "kbd"
    Option      "XkbRules" "sun"
    Option      "XkbModel" "type6"
    Option      "XkbKeyCodes" "type6"

    Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"


I've tried various options, with both "kbd" and "keyboard" as the
driver. Is there a patch I need to apply to get it to work?
