Holger, you said switching to a different VT (with Ctrl-Alt-Fx) this
doesn't work, right ? but was this tested on i386 or x86 ?
Indeed, i was menaing amd64, not x86, sorry..
In the latter case, that's a known issue, but i never heard f vt
switching broken on i386.
It was broken on i386 this time.
I have just checked and the same workaround we already had for in place
for amd64 is now also required for i386. I have committed the necessary
changes. It would be nice if somebody could check if it is needed for
powerpc as well.
So, i assume something has changed after etch release which requires
libgcc on i386 too, right?
The German keyboard issue is unrelated. With VT switching fixed I have
been able to check that the keyboard _is_ correct in the shell on VT2 and
VT3, so it looks like the keymap reloading for directfb is broken
somehow. If I check VT1, the messages about keymap reloading are indeed
missing; these messages are displayed if I test with an Etch image.
Attilio: it would be great if you could look into this.
So, again something has changed after etch release, which now prevents
keyboard reloading (which instead worked in etch) from working: any clue
about what it may be ?
