Hi,

I installed FreeBSD 7.2 in VMWare Fusion 2.0.5 but I can't seem to get the Portuguese keyboard of my Macbook Pro to function with it! I tried the "Portuguese (accent characters)" and "Portuguese" keyboard layouts from sysinstall but neither of them work well! It still uses the USA keyboard.

Has anyone been able to do this?

For a french Macbook pro I've made a keymap for the console.

For Xorg (built without HAL)
Code:
Option "XkbRules"   "xorg"
Option "XkbModel"   "macbook78"
Option "XkbLayout"  "fr"
That's not perfect and I also use xmodmap to adjust few keys.

That keymap is only for use in X Windows, right? I forgot to mention that my problem is in the console as my X Windows doesn't work :)

No the keymap is for the console only. You have to make a keymap but it is not hard (just time consumming).

For frenchies, there is already a keymap for the macbook (fr.macbook.acc.kbd) so it was very easy to make a keymap for french macbook pro. If you make a portuguese keymap submit it to the project.

How can I test what the scan code is for the key I'm pressing? I've looked everywhere!
I did not find any solutions for this, I hacked the kbd driver with some printf(). I'm sorry but I don't remember exactly.
