[SOLVED] Volume key malfunction

Hello, all. I have recently ordered a ThinkPad, and I love it. Recently my volume keys (only up/down, not mute) decided not to work. I have been unable to identity any changes in my setup that would account for such behavior. I finally restored the main functionality of my media buttons by mapping those keys to the command 'amixer set Master 5%+-' with ccsm. While adjusting the volume, however, this workaround doesn't let me know what the actual volume is. I used to have a little black OSD appear to let me know how far my volume was, where as now I am shooting in the dark. Does anybody happen to know how I can invoke the media controller directly, or perhaps why my keys have stopped working? Of course I'll be happy to supply any docs/info requested.

Thank you for taking the time!

Re: [SOLVED] Volume key malfunction

Amazing! I was able to fix my problem thanks to the pointer.

After reading this thread [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1175368], I was able to downgrade the following packages and regain the use of my function keys and dialog boxes:

xf86-input-evdev (2.7.3-2 -> 2.7.3-1)
xf86-video-intel (2.20.9-2 -> 2.20.9-1)
xorg-server-common (1.13.0-2 -> 1.12.4-1)
xorg-server (1.13.0-2 -> 1.12.4-1)

Thanks for the help everybody. Wait a few days before going with the latest xorg-server.
