I thought this (http://www.torredehanoi.org/pub/lfs-livecd/lfslivecd-

would be a 64-bit LiveCD.
It isn't really the kernel config's fault, that the keyboard doesn't

As far as I know the efi (mac-bios) has a bug. Ubuntu hasn't solved this
problem, too. The only solution I found is to use refit on a usb stick.
refit is an efi not developed by apple and hasn't this keyboard-bug.
