Das Keyboard functiionality problem

I just connected a das keyboard (brown soft touch keys) to my computer running openSUSE 11.4. The function keys don’t work including the media keys. The function key may not work as well.

There are no choices for the das keyboard in the input devices within the desktop configuration. I tried all the Cherry options but no change in functionality. I haven’t tried the other keyboards but they seem too far removed.

Any help you can give is much appreciated.

2.4 ghz Pentium 4 (single core) on Asus P4Pe with 2 ghz memory, openSUSE 11.4 K desktop.

11.4 is past its end of life (cite:
http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime, no longer receiving security
patches through normal means. It therefore should not be exposed to
untrusted networks unless it incorporates Evergreen,
