Ive installed Gentoo 1.4 on a powerbook pismo and I selected the mac-se (swedish) keyboard mapping.

This keyboardmapping makes the keyboard totally unusable since
only garbage characters is showing up when I press a key.

Is anyone familiar with the problem?

Use the usual x86-keyboard-mappings. The files in /mac are for old ADB-systems. Recent systems are USB-based.

Yes, you should use sv-latin1!

And if you emerge the masked xfree-4.3.99*, they have much better support for iBook keyboards.
(read /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/rules/xfree86 )

Ok, thanks!

But how can I type characters like $, | (pipe) and @?

I cant do this either in X or in console.

Add
keycode 125 = AltGr
to
/usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/sv-latin1.map(.gz)

You have to do this with Apple's smaller keyboards; the old iMac or the *Books.
