While figuring out http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/13374, I was inspecting /usr/bin/km, it does "loadkeys" from the kbd package to load the keyboard table. But unfortunately it looks to me you can't just get the name of that table afterwards (eg with dumpkeys), you can only get the table itself from the kernel.
I am correct or am I missing something?
Looks like that's correct
How will we fix this, let km export an environment variable which we pull in the installer? Who maintains the "km" tool? it is not included in any package.
km was originally written by tpowa, but we couldn't figure out where to put the script - it didn't fit very well in the installer repo - so it's in the ISO config directory, somewhere in overlay I think.
Feel free to pull it into AIF. While it's not strictly for installation it's a custom utility used DURING installation, so it's probably useful.
