Bug#3210: loadkeys infelicities
I'm not sure what's going on, but there may be a bug in here
somewhere. I installed using dselect.
Linux version 1.3.100 (root@nomis) (gcc version 2.7.2)
kbdconfig v1.0 - Copyright (C)1996 Dominik Kubla
loadkeys version 0.89
1) loadkeys is too powerful
luser1 on a virtual terminal who runs loadkeys will screw up all
settings on all vts for all users who come later
chmod u-a loadkeys and move it to /usr/sbin (/sbin ?)
2) kbdconfig doesn't (configure)
Whatever I try doing in reply to kbdconfig's questions and even if I
delete the config file first I always get this /etc/kbd/configure:
The questions mention [NONE] as defaults. Typing in anything _always_
gives NONE, accepting the default always works. I'm not sure why the
first two lines are blank.
3) loadkeys uk.map is weird
After it pressing the pound sign (shift-3 on this kbd) generates no
character, just a 'beep'. However, ctrl-v shift-3 reveals the code
generated to be \243.
This might be due to a display problem rather than a kbd map problem,
i.e., my problem.
4) location of config file seems unusual
How about /etc/kbd.conf instead of /etc/kbd/config?
5) install messages vanish
The Debian install script says some blurb much of which is lost when
the script runs kbdconfig for the first time. I know it can be found
in /var/lib/dpkg/info/kbd.postinst, but others might not.
6) kbd.postinst says 'date' instead of 'data'
