In fact, "macintosh" has not been changed into "macintosh_vndr", you
may try "foo" or "bar" and have the same result. Everything but
"macintosh" means "pc105" (okay, this is not strictly true, there are
qome other valid models, but it does not really matter here).
So the question is: why has "macintosh" model been changed into
"pc105"? I do not remember exactly, there are other issues with
macintosh layouts, and upstream is interested in working with
debian-powerpc folks to improve the current situation, see
Can someone from debian-powerpc join the XKB list, so that these issues
can be looked at? IIRC one needs to send a mail to xkb-subscribe at
Thanks, and sorry for not sending this information before, I was busy
at that time.
