Re: Debian R31r2 on Sun Ultra
I have that Debian release working on an ultra sparc from the default
installation. However, the keyboard which is identified as a mskeyboard has
all the keys shifted to the right-- the key s is prints an 'a' the key d
prints an 's' the key f prints a 'd' etc., the same on the numberic keypad,
the function keys print assorted characters. I am using a sun keyboard type
6 with the sunmouse connected to the keyboard. The computer can be used to
play games only since there is only control of text.
I would appreciate help in fixing the keymap. Thanks in advance.
