Description barsnick 1999-08-23 03:48:26 EDT
In rc.sysint, `loadkeys' is started at a point where only
the root file system is mounted (ro). `loadkeys' itself is
in /usr/bin/. /usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/ is actually checked for,
but not existant on systems which have a separate /usr/

This leads to a "non-configured" keymap.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-23 12:10:59 EDT
loadkeys is actually in /bin; it does this so it can a keymap
that lives in /etc/sysconfig/console if there is one. If you're
running the 'keytable' service, it will still get loaded at
the normal place later.
