Hm... I'd prefer to keep layout as "qwerty", "azerty" and such :)
Subarches will just be arches as far as I'm concerned.

Great !  It won't be difficult to turn into perl code ;)

Next time, you'd better file the bug at once ;)

Hm, X keymap setup is currently quite a distinct thing.  I hope to add
one day support for reading Xkb defs in console-tools, but there are
so much things to do ;)

It would be great to share as much config info as we can with X,
though.  We'll see that when my code stabilizes for the console.

Great stuff as well.

Anyone knows about what keyboards BVME* use ?  Same as MVME ?

And what about CHRP, PreP ?  I guess some of them may only exist
as serial-console ?

... ??! Do all PPC's have any use of i386 keyamps ?  Or only MVME ?

Seems like this suggestion will hold for all ppc subarches ?

Thanks to all for the clarifications, I'll come back as needed !

Implementation is under way, will show up in
console-data_1999.08.29-8... before end of week I hope :|
