Description apeacock 2000-10-16 23:14:32 EDT
The keytab-lilo program does not work out of the box.  No matter what
parameters are passed, keytab-lilo reports:

findkeymap: No such file or directory
cannot open file us.map
keytab-lilo: Keymap is empty

The only thing which could help is that :

[root@mylinux /root]# keytab-lilo /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/us.kmap.gz
/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/azerty/fr-latin1.kmap.gz > /boot/fr-latin1.ktl 
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/us.kmap.gz
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/azerty/fr-latin1.kmap.gz
[root@mylinux /root]#

But after running lilo -v and rebooting....my keyboard isn't more in French...

Perhaps it will give you some ideas ?

I have the same problem with redhat 7.1.

I solve it with the original lilo.tar.gz : I extract the keytab-lilo.pl (perl
script), use it, reboot
ant it works well

the bug is in the packaged keytab-lilo (elf program)

This should be fixed in rawhide since we're using kbd again instead of
console-tools (the perl version isn't used because we don't want to have a
dependency on perl for lilo)
