Description torben 1999-05-28 12:51:30 UTC
Custimization of the supplied keymap files is best done
by loading a customized map after the default map.

I have local additions in There are two ways
to use it:

loadkeys  or

loadkeys  and then

None of this is possible with the current init scripts.
I tried to hack /etc/sysconfig/keyboard by editing it
KEYTABLE="dk-latin1 local" and double quoute the string
KEYTABLE in /etc/rc.d/init.d/keytable to get both keymaps
loaded. But that did not work.
It it did, linuxconf would destroy it at the next occasion.

For now, I have added an extra keymap line in
/etc/rc.d/init.d/keytable. But that will be gone the next
time I upgrade :-(

Hmmm; I set KEYTABLE="de us" in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
and it seemed to work OK - what errors did you get?
