    Apart from enabling/configuring keyboard backlighting in /etc/pommed.conf, you must also load the "applesmc" module. There is a problem, though, with this module producing an unending stream of error or debugging messages, filling up the system logs... This problem even persists in the module for the 2.6.26 kernel, reason why I have decided not to use it for now.

    alright so theres no way t fix that?

    Also, are there any problems with the other fn keys (i.e. excessive eror loging, debugging, etc...) that i should know about or fix?
