NetBSD  4.0_BETA NetBSD 4.0_BETA (GENERIC) #0: Sat Sep 23 00:26:28 UTC 2006  bui                                                                                                                                                /netbsd-4/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386

Choosing 'Belgian' keymap during installation has no effect. It adds 'encoding be' to /etc/wscons.conf but that's it. During boot, there is an error message related to this, the same as with running this command:

# wsconsctl -k -w encoding=be
wsconsctl: WSKBDIO_SETENCODING: Invalid argument

FYI, I remember I had this problem back when I once tested NetBSD-2, and unfortunately it still exists. This is a very annoying bug, and I would like to see it fixed ASAP.
Run this command:

wsconsctl -k -w encoding=be
