An updated hal-info package that fixes one bug and adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The hal-info package contains various device information files (also known as .fdi files) for the hal package.

Bug Fix

Previously, the "Mic Mute" and "Touchpad Toggle" keys did not transmit the correct symbol in Lenovo laptops. With this update, the aforementioned keys are correctly recognized by the X.Org Server, and the XF86AudioMicMute and XF86TouchpadToggle signals are transmitted successfully.


To support the various "Fn" keys on latest Toshiba laptops, this update changes the hal-info remapping rules for Toshiba laptops from the provided kernel keycode to a keycode compatible with X.
Users of hal-info are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug and adds this enhancement.
