    In X, you'll have to edit the line in your keyboard section that says "XKbLayout" to have the value of your new keymap. In CLI, you can edit your /etc/rc.conf (keymap="").

    yep thx ! but that's not my problem.. i want just to make a keymap how doesn't exist ... but i have found (huh ... sorry fo my beautiful english). For poeple's how are interested with making a new keymap :

    go to > /etc/X11/xkb/

    and there you have a lot of subdirectory to specify your keymap .. if it is just to redefine key ... go to ./labels/ and there you can edit a file as a template. then you can use it in the XF86config-4
