Description Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-24 21:02:35 UTC
linuxconf appears to look below the base keymap directory
for filenames matching the regexp [a-zA-Z].map.gz
This is now obsolete.  The new way is to do something
functionally equivalent to
find /usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/<arch> | egrep '.k?map'
to get the list of files and
sed 's:.*/\([^/][^/]*\)\.k*map\.gz:\1:g'
to get the names that should be attached to those

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-31 16:14:59 UTC
Jacques, this bug still exists in linuxconf-1.14r2
I still only see default, ro, or sr as options.

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-04-08 20:20:59 UTC
Still occurs in linuxconf-1.14r3.1

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-04-09 16:33:59 UTC
Still occurs in linuxconf-1.14r4
Jacques, what do I need to do to help you fix this?

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-04-09 18:12:59 UTC
Jacques, I found it.  You were only looking for .map and .map.gz
files, not .kmap and .kmap.gz files.  I'll send the patch in email.
