keyboard maps

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Hi all,

I'm building out a few Ultra1's for a little personal project I'm
working on.  I'm going through the build described in the SPARC
handbook, and I'm almost done.  I used the 2006.0 profile, so I'm
running the most recent kernel (2.6.15-r5).  Everything seems to be
going good, except for one thing.  As the subject implies, the
keyboard is doing funky stuff, but only at the console.  The ssh
profile seems to be OK.  The keyboard seems to work fine when I boot
to the SPARC livecd, but when I boot into the 2.6 kernel I get
funkiness.  I'm using a Sun Type5c keyboard.  I made sure to compile
those options into the kernel, so I'm guessing that there's a keyboard
map that I need to link to, or modify or something.  Any pointers
would be a help.  Most of what I still need to do, and what I want to
do with my project can be done through an ssh session, but on a couple
of them, I still have a few modifications that I need to make at the
console.

TIA

Hi,

I assume you'll have to adjust your KEYMAP variable
in /etc/conf.d/keymaps

Setting it to "sunkeymap" should do the trick. (though I currently
don't have linux-equipped sun handy).

Greetings,

Actually, for a 2.6 kernel, KEYMAP should be "us".  On a 2.6 kernel, sun
keyboards appear as regular 'ole PC keyboards.

This holds true even for X configuration.  From the relevant sections of
my xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Keyboard0"
        Driver          "kbd"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc105"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us"
EndSection

I'm not sure about this (no sun with linux handy) but I assumed that at
least in past times one had to set it to "sunkeymap" for sun type
$anything keyboards and to "us" for usb ones (with no matter of kernel
version). I could be wrong ;-)

Do you have an usb keyboard?
