Description b.candler 1999-05-03 05:35:45 EDT
Non-US keymaps don't load at boot time if /usr is on a separate partition, because rc.sysinit tries to do it before mounting filesystems. Note the line: if [ -n $KEYTABLE -a -d /usr/lib/kbd/keymaps ]; then So, need to defer the keymap selection until _after_ the filesystems have been mounted. Moving this section of code to where the clock is configured works. [This was on a system upgraded from RH5.2 to RH6.0, so the console/default.kmap file was not present]

they're loaded again by the keytable initscript later
on in the boot process. (the same place they were before....)
