Sorry I can help you much because, my keyboard work ok under emacs,
either directly on vga, or under framebuffer console with fbterm, (and
thru ssh but it don't use the BNN keyboard).
I have all keys basic, shift, symbol, fn, alt is correctly mapped to meta.

My Keyboard don't work well when I try to use Xorg (which in any case
is too big for anything but a test, on BNN), or kdrive. In this case I
have no shift, no modifier. But I suppose you don't use emacs on X.

Have you also some problem under ssh?


PS. As a side note if somebody has set a kbdmap for use with X on BNN,
It would be nice to share it.
