Dual keyboard layouts


I got a problem. I am running Xfree86 on gentoo and i want to be able of using two keyboard layouts, both Swedish and Icelandic. My XF86Config file (the keyboard part) looks like this now:

Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
Option "XkbLayout" "is,se"
Option "XkbVariant" "latin1"

And bot layouts work. But some keys simply refuses to work. The key contaning < and > doesnt work.

I use gkrellm2 to change between the keyboard layouts.

Does anybody know how to get them working?

If it still doesn't work, maybe files describing keyboard layouts (in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols) are not good.
Try on Sweedish/Icelandic linux forums. Someone there could have a solution.
