Description jtiisto 1999-05-03 06:56:02 UTC
If you have a different /usr partition rc.sysinit fails to
set the correct keymap since the keymaps and layouts are in
/usr and it's mounted after the setting of the keymap.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-03 15:05:59 UTC
yes, but the keymap will still be loaded by the keytable initscript
later in the boot process, just as it was in 5.2. The loading
in rc.sysinit is for people that put the keymap in
/etc/sysconfig/console, so that they have the keymap loaded
if they need to login (fsck problems, etc.)
