Debian Sarge on IBM X40 howto - Part 1: Keymap

My keyboard didn’t function properly… even though I could write danish characters like “æøå”, I wasn’t able to shift through the virtual consoles with (Ctrl+Alt+F1 - F6).

dpkg-reconfigure console-data

revealed that the “specific keymap” was set to “Apple USB”. changing this to “Standard” helped.
