There are a big problem using diferent keyboard layout
(I'm using a Spanish keyboard). (Inaccesible Keys)

But If I use a Portable Computer... "SHIFT" apperars like
a "1" key... and another control keys are mapped as
normal keys, so it is complete impossible to use it.

It is necessary to add a keyboard layout configuration.

    Very similar to german keyboards.

    The right ALT key "ALT GR" with a key produces a "1" before
    the character and makes it unusable.

    yes. it's a bit odd.
    The problem is that SDL gives us keys we don't know how to
    handle.

    (so it reports that shift of yours to a key we don't know of
    instead of shift)

    I have a similar problem with the CVS version. Almost all
    keys work as expected when not used with "shift" or similar,
    but when using Shift, it reverts to a US layout.

    It works fine with the version in Debian though.

    pv2b this will be behaviour of the next version of dosbox as
    well.

    The shift->us idea.

    The bug has been fixed.
    Wait for the upcoming new version to see it.

    Or:

    The updated source is available by cvs.

    See the link on top of the screen for information on how to get
    the new sources.
