kbrequest in inittab


I'd like to run a binary using the kbrequest entry in /etc/inittab. It works fine if I make entries to execute "Ondemand" for appropriate (a,b,c) runlevels but kbrequest is most unhappy.

bit:12345:kbrequest:/sbin/BitTest followed by telinit Q or init 5 should allow me to execute using Alt L shouldn't it?

I've checked keymap (dumpkeys/loadkeys) and Keyboard signal seems appropriate for this.

thanks

Did you add the appropriate KeyboardSignal to your default keymap?
Example mapping Alt Arrow Up:
Code:
loadkeys << EOF
alt keycode 103 = KeyboardSignal
EOF
//NTLB
