Xorg Keymap

    Hi !

    It's been a long time since I upgraded testing/unstable debian
    on my SS20. It's currently still running a 2.4.26 kernel. I have
    a type5 with euro keyboard and my xorg.conf was configured like
    that. It worked perfectly. Unfortunately, since I upgraded
    yesterday, my keymap is fully destroyed.

    I know that there have been a lot of keymap related message recently
    mainly due to upgrading to a 2.6 kernel and that one should use a
    pc-style type of keyboard instead of a sun one. But I still use a
    2.4 so I don't think this applies to me.

    I've found a sun keycodes file in this ml archive but it is from
    last december so maybe a little outdated. Anyway, I tried it and
    it was not the good solution.

    Has anyone already found such a problem ?
    Do someone know what's happening and a potential solution ?

    Here is what I have in xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "sun"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "type5_euro"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us"

     I tried with type5 only with no better chance.
     Xorg is: X Window System Version 7.1.1

ii  xserver-xorg       7.1.0-5         the X.Org X server
ii  xserver-xorg-core  1.1.1-10        X.Org X server -- core server
ii  xlibs              6.9.0.dfsg.1-6  X Window System client libraries
                                       metapackage and XKB data
ii  xlibs-data         7.1.0-5         transitional package for X11
                                       client data
