I posted this about a week ago, but somehow it didn't show on the list,
so let's try again...

Looking at the sources (15-oct-94) for the first time, I have got
some questions:

=20 Why is the console in /etc/ttys marked 'off' ? Instead, ttye0 is us=

=20 I played with loadkmap (/usr/src/sys/arch/amiga/stand/loadkmap).
=20 Why are the BS and DEL keys swapped ? This is annoying and i could
=20 not find any reason for this.=20
=20 Furthermore the default ascii keymap (din-map as well) is missing a=
=20 entry for the keypad '+' key. Therefore, the 'HELP' key didn't work
=20 correct, too.
=20 Btw. where am I supposed to send changes of common interest ?
=20 maybe C. Hopps ?

=20 The ufs filesystem seems to work with non-ASCII characters,
=20 especially umlauts. Unfortunately, the console cannot display them,
=20 although i can type them. Is this a font problem ? or is there any
=20 esc-sequence to change this behaviour ? A first glance over ite.c
=20 seems to indicate that, but i could not figure out, how to do it.

=20 The keypad doesn't work within a vi session. Any hints, how to chan=
=20 this ?

hoping for answers... Klaus

PS: I'm running a kernel made of the 941015 sources (tar balls) with
=20   prerelease2 binaries on an a3000/25
