Solved. Setting the keyboard arch to pc (?!) solved most of my problems
(although I already had a working modification of the mac-usb-es map). The
remaining problem was the alt-gr key, which was solved setting the Switch-mode
action to that key.

Sound working by recompiling 2.6.0-ben1 and using alsa. The default modprobe
does not work, but unloading and reloading the module finds the right card and
seems to work like a charm.

2.6.0-ben1 solved that problem too.

Hummm 2.6.0-ben1 seems to come with a quite recent dri module (1.9.0) although
I seem stupid enough to get more than 100FPS.
Looking better now ;)
