[Arm-netbook] Keymap problems in X11 with arrow keys, PgUp and PgDn

I tried this... setting the options to use devices /dev/input/event0 (for 
the keyboard) and /dev/input/event1 (for the touchpad) in 

The results were disastrous. The keyboard spewed copious amounts of 
garbage, and the touchpad simply did not work.

Did I do something wrong?
