strange messages in system logs

Roman Makurin
Hi All
I`ve got some strange messages in my /var/log/syslog file, like this:

Nov 20 05:44:48 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2,
code 0xaa on isa0060/serio0).
Nov 20 05:44:48 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e02a <keycode>' to make
it known.
Nov 20 05:44:48 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2,
code 0xaa on isa0060/serio0).
Nov 20 05:44:48 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e02a <keycode>' to make
it known.
Nov 20 05:44:50 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2,
code 0xaa on isa0060/serio0).
Nov 20 05:44:50 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e02a <keycode>' to make
it known.
Nov 20 05:44:50 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2,
code 0xaa on isa0060/serio0).
Nov 20 05:44:50 c3po kernel: atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e02a <keycode>' to make
it known.

What does it mean ? This messages clutter up my logs and its hard to see sny
useful information.

Yes, a lot of us are bugged by this .. do a google search to pick up
the ubuntu forums thread with some comments and ideas to eliminate it.
 Possibly 'sudo /etc/init.d/hotkey-setup stop' might work .. if it
doesn't disable something you need, you can 'sudo chmod -x
/etc/init.d/hotkey-setup' to disable it permanently.

regards,
