Hi There

I'm trying to get the euro / dollar keys on my keyboard to work.
after Hacking around in the kernel, I can now see these keys when
running showkey on the console (i.e. not inside xterm, but really 
on VT1-VT6).

xev does see nothing, thou. Is there any special option to instruct
evdev to forward these keys?
