Console keyboard layout.


Hello,

I have a one simple question.
How do I check what is current keyboard layout set in console or virtual console?

With Solaris it is simple as running kbd -l command.

There are environment variables.

Code:
echo $KEYBOARD
echo $KEYTABLE
These can set system wide in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
