I don't think there is anything hardware-specific in ckbcomp. Try running
I suppose everything will be OK with ckbcomp.
If this is so, then the next suspect is /bin/setupcon. Try restoring
ckbcomp and running setupcon by hand (from the text console). Does it
work? If no, then this is good as it will be easier to debug. Please
sh -x /bin/setupcon >/tmp/setupcon.debug
and send the file setupcon.debug.
Otherwise (that is if setupcon works), there must be something early
during the boot process causing the problem. In this case you can
replace the line
if setupcon -k 2>/dev/null; then
in the script /etc/init.d/keyboard-setup with
if setupcon -k 2>/tmp/setupcon.debug; then
Then send us the content of the file setupcon.debug.
P.S. In case this laptop is a multiuser system, don't forget to restore the
original content of /etc/init.d/keyboard-setup because ouputting to a
fixed file name in a world-writtable directory is a security risk.
