Subjectdefkeymap making machine useless (was Re: HTC Dream aka. t-mobile g1 support)
Hi!

Debate is about keymaps:

Ok, I created something useful in the meantime. Question is, what to
do with the new keymap? I can obviously keep it at local patch,
but...

PC defkeymap.map makes HTC Dream useless.

HTC Dream defkeymap.map makes PC useless :-(.

Of course, Dream does that. But that's not _nearly_ enough. Dream
lacks keys such as: esc, arrows, symbols (/;'[]\-=). That means that
for +, you can't press shift-=, you need to press altgr-P.

So yes, mapping keycodes helps (at least you get a-z,0-9), but that's
basically it, and keys it has are not enough to actually type loadkeys
/foo/bar/baz.map :-(.
