Hi,

Did you set up your /etc/sysconfig/console file correctly (describe here: 7.5. Configuring the Linux Console)?

Although you haven't posated any info about your keyboard, I would suspect that you need to set the KEYMAP variable to reflect your keyboard.

Hope this helps.

how to do that?

Hi,

Which part of the earlier posted link is unclear?

- What have you tried,
- What keyboard do you have,
- What does your /etc/sysconfig/console look like (do you have one).

#Begin /etc/sysconfig/console
UNICODE="1"
KEYMAP="de-latin"
KEYMAP_CORRECTIONS="euro2"
LEGACY_CHARSET="iso-8859-15"
FONT="LaTArCyrHeb-16 -m 8859-15"

#End /etc/sysconfig/console


the /etc/sysconfig/console look as such.............

Hi,

I doubt that the content of /etc/sysconfig/console is correct for you (it looks like you just copied the last example from the LFS page). The above tells me that you want a german keyboard, use UTF-8, a fancy font and the euro2 correction (the KEYMAP_CORRECTIONS is hardly ever used....).

Did you have this console set-up when you posted your initial (post #1) question? If so, you might consider removing it completely. As mentioned in the first paragraph of that chapter, the console file might not be needed at all.

Hope this helps.
