           Summary: Issues regarding "Configuring your keyboard" (Ch 6, Kbd-
                    1.12) section
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 5.1pre2
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: lizardo at linuxfromscratch.org

This is really a 5.1 bug, but the entry for this release is not here. 
 
The above section says the following: 
 
"When in Chapter 8 you're ready to compile the kernel, run the following 
command to patch the current default keymap into the source (you will have to 
repeat this command whenever you unpack a new kernel): 
 
loadkeys -m /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/defkeymap.map.gz > \ 
    /usr/src/linux-2.4.25/drivers/char/defkeymap.c" 
 
But, when compiling the kernel, anywhere it's said that you _must_ unpack your 
kernel at /usr/src. So either we need to change the above hard-coded path to 
something like 
 
<kernel sources dir>/drivers/char/defkeymap.c 
 
Or make a note on Kernel section about unpacking it to /usr/src. 
 
Also note that the kernel version on the command above is wrong, we are on 
2.4.26 on LFS 5.1.
