Bug#395257: Workaround for keymap related bugs in g-i available, please test it
Today, after many unlucky experiments, i tried disabling the "keyboard"
module in directfbrc, hence having linux_input manage the keyboard, as
DOK and suggested some times ago and Davide reminded me yesterday.
Guess guess, now keymap can be correctly switched multiple times
between english and italian, and i also verified that
- With de-latin1 keymap the @ symbol is obtained with AltGr-q
- With sg-latin1 keymap the @ symbol is obtained with AltGr-2
All this with console in utf mode.
I prepared a miniiso  for testing: could you dear d-i fellows please
test and report whether your local keymap correctly works?
CC'ing directfb-dev too: dok, do you believe managing keyboard via
linux_input instead of keyboard module has any drawback?
the iso is named that way because in /usr/local/bin you'll find test
binaries from DirectFB-examples, which may be useful for debugging
purposes, especially df_input
