Hello ,

I just installed gentoopcc on my Pismo Powerbook , and the install went 
very smooth.
After I compiled my kernel and made some last configurations I rebooted 
and my fresh gentoo booted just fine.

But when I got my login prompt I noticed that my whole keyboard was 
mangled. Not in a qwerty vs. azerty way though. For example 8 is now 
return , and space = n etc...
And since I was stupid enough not to emerge openssh before rebooting, 
I'm stuck with a perfectly installed distro , but no way of fixing whats 
wrong.
I hope its an ADB driver problem because then I can plug-in a USB 
keyboard and hope that will work.

I've searched the web and mailinglists , but cannot find any info about 
the problem.
Does anyone have a clue about what went wrong ?

Thanx in advance,

Nicky Peeters
