Alas, the options and makeoptions for selecting a default keymap does
not work, at least not for USB keyboards.


As I said above, if you use vt, and kbdmux (which is standard and even
mandatory to be able to use Xorg), specifying the keymap for atkbd and
usbkbd is useless..

Just for the record...
I track CURRENT (11) on my development box. I built my kernel
with sc(4) (SYSCONS)

# atkbdc0 controls both the keyboard and the PS/2 mouse
device          atkbdc                  # AT keyboard controller
device          atkbd                   # AT keyboard
device          psm                     # PS/2 mouse

device          kbdmux                  # keyboard multiplexer

# syscons is the default console driver, resembling an SCO console
device          sc
options         SC_PIXEL_MODE           # add support for the raster text mode

As well as vt ( VIRTUAL TERMINALS(4) )

# vt is the new video console driver
device          vt
device          vt_vga
device          vt_efifb

I have no trouble(s) running X on this box (I'm writing this from
within my web browser, on an X11 desktop)

The only provision I had to make, was in loader.conf(5) :

kern.vty=sc

and life is good! :)

In all fairness; I use a US keyboard, *but* using SYSCONS *doesn't*
prevent my being able to run X11. :)

Hope this helps!

I run syscons with X on a number of systems...

I MUST run vt on certain systems with Intel grahics, with drm2, to be
able to swich from X to console and back (and is the current FreeBSD
standard for X ports). kbdmux is mandatory in this case because X must
put the keyboard in raw mode, which cannot be done with vt only (and a
reason of the presence of kbdmux in GENERIC)..

And I always use a non US keyboard - which IS the context of the
ORIGINAL post !

Have a look at PR 194744 by Oliver Pinter

      (https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=194744)

This PR is now more than 1 year old, and nothing has been done: people
using non-US keyboard are not popular here..
