Error loading key mappings {!!}
 
I am getting the following Error loading key mappings {!!} when gentoo boots up

i can issue loadkeys uk , and it loads without a problem, to do that each time i reboot gentoo, would be impractical..

thanks in advance

here's a crufty workaround: add
Code:

@reboot loadkeys uk
to your crontab.

One cruftitude of this: multiple users might do that, and you end up with a race condition. Therefore this is not a "real" solution, but I hope it helps. I have no clue about how gentoo goes about setting the keyboard layout, so I can't help you with that.

I played with some configurations files, and it now works except for one letter on the keyboard , in the console only, the uk sterling symbol ie , it display a u with a curl on the top.

how would i remove that?

thanks
