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.

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).

#End /etc/sysconfig/console

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.
