Error loading binary keymap

Post by Jabberwock » 05 Jun 2010, 12:41

BUG
Russian utf console keymap loads partialy from initramfs
DESCRIPTION
When I apply install3 script from topic "Cyrrilisation of System Rescue CD" line

Code: Select all

loadkeys "$RUS/keymaps/$MAP" && cd $TMP/lib/keymaps/ && $TMP/bin/busybox dumpkmap >$MAP && cp $MAP $NMAP && cp "$RUS/keymaps/keymapList" "$TMP/lib/keymaps/"
should load unicode keymap and dump it to binary keymap format for busybox.
(In $TMP I extract initramfs)

After reboot I select ru-utf layout from busybox menu, boot SRCD.
Small russian letters togles OK, but I cant switch to big (shifted) ones.
When i run

Code: Select all

loadkeys ru-utf
in console I can toggle to russian uppercase letters.
ANOTHER WAY REPRODUCE
loadkeys fr
tmp/bin/busybox loadkmap < tmp/lib/keymaps/49.map
Russian in lowercase only

QUESTION
Is any way to edit binary keymap without "busybox dumpkmap"?

Sorry for long delay. If you just recreate the russian keymap and send it to me I will upload the official file.

You have to run busybox on a system with the right keymap anyway.
