Re: keymap setup for TiBook
Never mind on the keymap since I just figured that out ... duh, I
had the wrong keyboard layout defined. I think I know what I need to
do for the mouse buttons but if someone wants to bless me with your
experience, please do so!

Thanks for making me even more warm and fuzzy about my purchase :)
BTW - can you point me to any docs about getting the keymap setup
correctly and binding 2nd and 3rd mouse buttons on the TiBook. I know
there's gotta be a FAQ out there since I can't be the first to stumble
Right now I'm passing the "linux_send_keycodes=1" (I know that's not the
exact flag but writing this off the top of my head) to the kernel and I
did the dpkg-reconfigure on console-data and followed the instructions.
I'm using the "macintosh" keymapping in Xfree4 and *not* the
"macintosh_old" keymap. Things are okay in console (except I have
trouble switching VTs) but in X, a lot of keys are mapped wrong. Most
annoying, I can't get "/" .... grrrrrr :) This is all on unstable if
that makes a difference.
A little direction would be appreciated.

I think that if you're interested in using OS X down the road, you'll
be better off with a G4 (disregard clock rate). At the moment, that
limits your choice to a TiBook. If you're going for Linux only, your
decision gets harder and you could probably get by with a G3. Of
course, the TiBook is made of TITANIUM and has a 15" screen @5.3
lbs. Cool .......
Even with Linux, the choice isn't so hard, with a growing amount of
software supporting Altivec. In particular, watching DVDs is certainly
much more of a pleasure on a TiBook now than it will probably ever be on
a G3 Notebook.
Also, in contrast to e.g. the sound problems with an iBook2, pretty much
all of the TiBook's hardware is well supported.
