How to make your crappy PC keyboard act like a Unix keyboard, including an updated keydump for Fedora 10 (as well as the older goodness for F9 and lower).
Also, here's a brief snippet on how to get your second monitor
to display next to your primary monitor on F10 using xrandr and
the built-in nv driver:
First, get the names of both of your monitors by running xrandr with
no arguments, like so:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3200 x 1200, maximum 3520 x 1600
VGA1 disconnected
DVI0 connected 1600x1200+0+0 408mm x 306mm
1600x1200 60.0*+
((stuff omitted))
VGA2 disconnected
DVI1 connected 1600x1200+1600+0 400mm x 300mm
1600x1200 60.0*+
((stuff omitted))
The names of my two monitors are DVI0 and DVI1. Now all I have to do
is tell xrandr to put DVI1 to the right of DVI0 and I will have dual-head
goodness without having to use the proprietary NVidia driver:
xrandr --output DVI1 --right-of DVI0
