      My whoops. But when I did the --list on the actually-installed kernel
      RPM, i8k.ko wasn't there, of course.

      I downloaded the kernel RPM to which you pointed, and I'm surprised
      and disturbed that, even though the name of the RPM I installed on my
      machine matches the one I downloaded from your link, their contents
      are quite different. Indeed, i8k.ko is in the one you pointed to,
      along with quite a lot of other stuff that's missing from mine. Why
      should that be so? (I got mine through a yum update.)

      I'll report back after I try to install it (assuming I don't hose my
      machine :-).

        That did it. And I didn't trash my system. :-) Thanks!

        Some notes:

        1) Did rpm -Uvh --force, because the RPM was already installed.

        2) To turn on volume control buttons, edit /etc/sysconfig/i8k to read
        ENABLE_I8KBUTTONS=yes
        and restart (# service i8k restart).
