Hi, Domenico,

Please, don't ;-)

Next time, please  try[1]:

# loadkeys  /usr/share/keymap/..??.perhaps_mac./it-something.gz

to load a console map that will suit you -sorry I don't remember which
keymap corresponds to the it-qzerty, but I'm pretty sure I saw it.

I opened a bug against kbd-chooser of the D-I that doesn't
allow a user to choose properly its keymap:

If you want to share you experience please email to:



[1] And if you loose a character try to map you keymap by yourself
    with a pencil and a sheet :-/ I think that characters have been messed
    up, but dot cancelled.

P.S. you can also send a mil to the italian linux ppc mailing list:
