Keys behavior tuning (on virtual terminal)

Just installed system (CRUX 2.2), no GUI installed at all.
On virtual terminal the "Delete" key (and also keys "Home", "End" etc) only insert the '~' symbol. I thought it could be solved with help of ~/.inputrc file, but when I've added
"\e[3~": delete-char
line - nothing changed. Wat are another ways to solve it?
And, if possible, could you give a link to detailed description of inputrc file (avaliable options, for example), because I just couldn't find it in Google?

Also I've copied /etc/inputrc file from another distribution, where everything works fine, and it didn't help, so it's something else causing the problem.
P.S: but I still will be grateful for documentation about this file.
