keymap rule selection for non-DMI platforms

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

hi --

OLPC's latest laptop (the 1.75 model) is ARM-based.  this means the
current keymap rule in rules.d/95-keymap.rules:

 ENV{DMI_VENDOR}=="OLPC", ATTR{[dmi/id]product_name}=="XO", \
 	RUN+="keymap $name olpc-xo"

won't trigger -- there's no DMI information.

any thoughts on how non-PC hardware should be identifying itself
to udev?  are there other examples of how this might be done?

i'm sure we could come up with something, based on examining some
other sysfs attribute, or perhaps running a command which identifies
our laptop(s), but i suspect this issue has come up before.
