have been working on this, big job though as I've been building a ground up
distro, moving back to glibc2.1.3 (had to work out to compile this, long
story), then had to compile busy box using that glibc version, which is not
my actualy glibc version on my machine, then had to compile xfree86, now
finally doing the tidy up, replacing the telnet package with a much smaller
version, once I have things back at a working state again, i'll spend some
time on the keyboard problems, any more info anyone has will be useful

OK, in my quest for a working Danish keyboard I added the four "Option"
lines to packages/xf4/lib/X11/XF86Config-XFree86.tpl in order to force a
Danish keyboard. It was sucessful so far that these lines ended up in
client as well, however the client /var/log/XFree86.0.log stilled claims
"Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap". Something
seems wrong about the path to the keymap?
While working on this I also tried:
Option "XkbLayout" "$KEYBOARD_MAP"
but THAT was a bad idea (X wouldn't even start!). Seems a bit strange to
me since the other parameters from netstation.conf appears like this in
I still would like to hear if *anybody* has a perfect non-US keyboard
with Netstation :-)
