Keymap with ,,


I did get the wrong keymap during installation of Slackware 9.1 on a Lap-Top.
Else the installation went fine.
But without ,,- and a lot of other keys wrong, I really have problems.

Perhaps somebody know what to do ??

The keyboard layout is loaded in /etc/rc.d/rc.keymap. Since I use Swedish letters, my rc.keymap looks like
# Load the keyboard map.  More maps are in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps.
if [ -x /usr/bin/loadkeys ]; then
I guess you're from Denmark or Norway, so you'll probably want to use or

You might also have to change what your /etc/X11/XF86Config(-4) says in the Section specifying the XkbLayout. In my "Swedish" case:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard1"
    Driver "Keyboard"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout" "se"
