Hello,

I've just downloaded the Gentoo 2006.0 Minimal INSTALL/CD for PowerPC and booted it ;)
I have a Powerbook 12" with French keyboard :?

I do not find an appropriate keymap to load with loadkeys. I use the be-latin1 keymap (from the i386 ones as suggested in the install handbook) because it is the one with best suits my keyboard layout.

But... On Macs with french (or latin ones I guess) keyboards, {}[]|~ are done with combinations of the fn and alt keys. I cannot type these characters.

For example: ~ is done with alt-N, | (pipe) is done with fn-alt-L.

Which layout should I use.
Did anyone had the same/similar problem ?

I also noticed the @ character is not produced by typing the @ key (in the location of the ² key on a french i386 keyboard). But produces a ² character.
