Thanks! I am currently working on learning xkb. I will post my way if it can work.
I know the Rawhide is not very stable, but it provides the cutting-edge features and software.
There is another issue I just found:
I download the image of Rawhide 20160923 version, then I upgraded my system today. When restarted the laptop again, there seems to be another grub entry. How can I delete the old one? There are 3 entries in my grub list totally, the last is a rescue mode entry.
Can you tell me how to delete the old one?

Hi Bowen! Just wanted to make sure you're aware Rawhide is the most
'unstable' development version of Fedora; it's more stable and tested
than it used to be but we still don't recommend it for everyday use.
It's awesome to have people running it (we want more!) but we do
recommend you have a stable Fedora release around too just in case
Rawhide goes wrong.

As for your problem - if you're running Workstation, then it's probably
not working because you're not using X :) Workstation in Fedora 25 and
Rawhide now defaults to using Wayland. So if that's your situation,
you'll need to look up how to do the equivalent of xmodmap on Wayland -
I don't know about this off-hand. I looked it up just quickly with
Google, and here are some references that may help: (note: from 2011, so things may have improved)

Basically xmodmap indeed doesn't work on Wayland, you need to customize
the xkb configuration instead. xkb to learn about...hope
those links help. :) Good luck! Maybe if you're successful you could
write up a handy blog post or something explaining your findings?

Thanks a lot!
