ADB keycodes are no longer supported. When your kernel sends ADB
keycodes, console-data will say:
Your kernel is configured to have the keyboard send ADB keycodes. This
behaviour is now deprecated and no longer supported by Debian.
For best results you should reconfigure your kernel with
CONFIG_MAC_ADBKEYCODES=n. If you can't or don't want to do this for some
reason, pass keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1 as an argument to the kernel.
The question is which kernel boot-floppies comes with on powerpc.
kernel-patch-2.4.16-powerpc (2.4.16-1) turned off ADB keycodes (see
#120626). Perhaps boot-floppies use an older kernel?
(I'm not an powerpc expert.)
