I cannot believe it. I simply cannot believe it. How in this
world is it possible to wreck the keymap that often? In the
last year at least 5 or 6 versions killed my keymap and I
with some stuff (some russian keymap that appeared out of
nowhere) it took me hours for I had no hands- on access to
that box...

Now I log in some minutes ago (or at least I tried) and it
did not work. Say what, having to guess if it is at least
the US keymap sucks big rocks. It eventually worked and a
dpkg-reconfigure was my friend, but to say I am fed up is
like being way too nice.

Dear Mr. Yann Dirson, whatever you do, no matter what, just
make it work, please. These changed keymaps can cost some
admins' head on a rainy day and IMNSHO this happened once
too often... *sigh*

tired and what not, now going to bed or something...
