Re: Weird keymap problem

I'm using an iBook2.0 running 2.4.20-ben8 kernel. I'm just installing Debian
for the first time but I'm having a strange problem with the keyboard.

All the letters/numbers work fine but the other symbols are all out of
place, even for an iBook keyboard. Eg, the underscore and minus symbol are
at the /? key. Left square bracket doesn't print anything and the right
square bracket prints a + symbol, etc.

Are you sure you have the right keymap for your country ? Keymaps are generally the same for the letters, and diferent for symbols.

You should check that Option "XkbLayout" is set to the right value in your file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

I've already got append="keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1" in my yaboot and
have run ybin to update. Does anybody else know what the problem could be?
