Description Pekka Savola 2001-06-08 05:57:45 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.

Something like:

--- rc.d/rc.sysinit~	Sat Apr  7 18:10:47 2001
+++ rc.d/rc.sysinit	Fri Jun  8 12:59:44 2001

     if [ -x /usr/sbin/timeconfig ]; then
+    if [ -x /usr/sbin/kbdconfig ]; then
+	/usr/sbin/kbdconfig
+    fi
     if [ -x /usr/sbin/authconfig ]; then
 	/usr/sbin/authconfig --nostart

would probably be just fine :-)
Comment 1 Pekka Savola 2001-07-22 15:49:51 EDT
Reminder; additional note: sys-unconfig.8 will have to be touched too.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-07 02:47:22 EDT
Will be fixed in 6.12-1.
Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2001-08-11 06:58:54 EDT
sys-unconfig.8 was not patched.  Not sure if it's up-to-date anyway, though.

Re-opening, just in case.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-12 00:46:36 EDT
You must be looking at a different version. Looking at it here, it's patched.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-12 00:51:37 EDT
[root@nostromo root]# zgrep kbdconfig /usr/share/man/man8/sys-unconfig.8.gz 
kbdconfig, authconfig, and ntsysv.
.BR kbdconfig (8),
[root@nostromo root]# rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man8/sys-unconfig.8.gz

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