NetBSD 2.0.2 (GENERIC) #0: Wed Mar 23 08:53:42 UTC 2005 i386
[note:this is my first bsd]
I got the US keyboard (instead of the swiss one) so I do, according to the manual
# wsconsctl -k -w encoding=sf

Error message :
wsconsctl: WSKBDIO_SETENCODING: Invalid argument
Any time, problem with other encodings
wsconsctl -k -w encoding=sf
wsconsctl -k -w encoding=sg
wsconsctl -k -w encoding=ua
wsconsctl -k -w encoding=ru
wsconsctl -k -w encoding=pl
wsconsctl -k -w encoding=hu
wsconsctl -k -w encoding=be

Note: i downloaded the english version (because there is no french one) and used installation both in french/english
Check if disposition files aren't missing
This error seems to appear from the procedure WSKBDIO_SETENCODING
And the case sf seems to be absent from the switch/if loop.

Note that if i try
# wsconsctl -k -w encoding=aa
it says the correct error message (aa: not a valid encoding)

Thank you for your great job.
PS: May I be notified when there is a solution ?
Thank you.
