Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-08-05 16:53:46 UTC
When rc.sysinit detects that the console is not a VT, it refrains from setting
up the configured KEYMAP, from loading the default sysfont, such that my
BR-ABNT2 keyboard doesn't work properly in text mode, and even rhgb fails to be
launched, even if it's still specified in the kernel cmd line.

Is there any good reason to cripple the environment just because I've *added* a
serial console?
