This is just an information which might be useful for others as well.
I am using colemak keymap and when now having switched to
dracut I wanted to be able to enter the LUKS passphrase using the colemak keymap.
\etc\dracut.conf.d/calamares-luks.conf like this
install_items+=" /etc/crypttab /etc/vconsole.conf "
and after rebuilding kernels things are fine now.
Thanks for sharing!
As a side note, I think it would be better to create a new conf file instead of modifying the one from calamares.
You could create
/etc/dracut.conf.d/colemak.conf and have the contents be:
install_items+=" /etc/vconsole.conf "
Side note 2: I wonder if we should be doing that in the installer…
For all of them?
There’s a lot…all kinds of dvorak’n’sheeeit
All that is changed from a dracut perspective is adding
vconsole.conf to the initrd. In theory, that would just mean that whatever settings you put in it would carry into dracut.
Thanks a lot for the tip using a new conf file.
I wasn’t sure this could be done. Will implement your suggestion.
