Re: Bug#85629: keymap for RiscPC
I've just added hackish support for transparently installing PC
keymaps on RiscPC machines. I'm not sure whether this hack will work
in every case, or even work at all.
I'll need your feedback.
This will be in console-common 0.6, about to be released.
Relevant changelog items:
* Moved ps2-to-riscpc from /usr/share/debhelper/dh-consoledata/ to
/usr/share/console/ (and hence from dh-consoledata to console-common).
* When on a RiscPC machine and trying to install a PC (PS/2) keymap,
translate it so that it works with the current RiscPC keyboard driver.
Hopefully the need for this hack will disappear in the 2.5 kernel
series. This was not done in the One True Right Way because it would
require far more work and would impact all other archs, which I'd like
to avoid. So if this hackish way of doing things actually works, it
will stay that way until we don't support 2.4 kernels any more and
we'll all happilly forget it afterwards.
