/usr/sbin/kbdconfig should be run if /.unconfigured
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:21:09 EDT
I feel /usr/sbin/kbdconfig should also be run, in addition to the
other existing *config tools, if host has been /.unconfigure'd.
This addresses problems when shipping "unconfigured" boxes to another
country, people using dvorak keyboards etc.

would probably be just fine :-)
Reminder; additional note: sys-unconfig.8 will have to be touched too.
Will be fixed in 6.12-1.
sys-unconfig.8 was not patched. Not sure if it's up-to-date anyway, though.
Re-opening, just in case.
You must be looking at a different version. Looking at it here, it's patched.

Ah sorry. Root dir of initscripts CVS hadn't just updated for me for some reason or another.
