I tested manually after entering the maintenance mode S06keyboard-setup

By wrong do you mean it is a QWERTY keyboard?  Or it is a French one but
wrong in some other way?

Its a qwerty keyboard.

What happens if you execute

loadkeys /etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz

Well I just removed it just in case. I will have to wait until reboot but I cannot now...

Is the contents of /etc/default/keyboard correct?  It has to contain
lines like the following:



What happens with the keyboard if you use the command 'setupcon' when
the machine is in regular mode (not in maintenance mode)?

Well I have tried t log on a console and this does no more work either.

I am puzzled by the fact you say the keyboard doesn't work in
maintenance mode but it works in normal mode.  This is because in both
cases the keyboard is configured by the command

loadkeys /etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz

I was simply wrong: I discovered it when entering in maintenance mode and last time I used the console to kill xbmc or kdm it worked. Something did chnage in the mean time.

and there is nothing there to depend on /usr being mounted.  Can you
edit /etc/default/console-setup and put there the line


and see if there are some error messages?
