 German Keyboard arrow key problems
Hi everybody!

Can anybody make my arrow-keys work?
I have a german 102-key Keyboard (that's what win95 says)
When i press the up-key i expect that what i typed before appears
again beside the prompt. Instead

^[

appears when the arrow-keys are pressed.
I already read http://www.**-**.com/
but i gave up thinking that german symbols will work in FreeBSD,
but the arrow-keys should.
I also could imagine that i don't (or forgot) have a 'keyboard-daemon'
installed that caches the keystrokes.
I could also imagine that i didn't quite understand what
/stand/sysinstall ->
-> Do post-install configuratio of FreeBSD ->
-> Customize system console behavior ->
-> Font, Keymap, Screenmap
does exactly.

My rc.conf part looks like this:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
keymap="german.iso"     # keymap in /usr/share/syscons/keymaps/* (or
NO).
keyrate="NO"            # keyboard rate to: slow, normal, fast (or NO).
keybell="NO"            # bell to duration.pitch or normal or visual (or
NO).
keychange="NO"          # function keys default values (or NO).
cursor="NO"             # cursor type {normal|blink|destructive} (or
NO).
scrnmap="NO"            # screen map in /usr/share/syscons/scrnmaps/*
(or NO).
font8x16="NO"           # font 8x16 from /usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or
NO).
font8x14="NO"           # font 8x14 from /usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or
NO).
font8x8="NO"            # font 8x8 from /usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or
NO).
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I also tried this:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
keymap="german.iso"             # keymap in /usr/share/syscons/keymaps/*
(or NO).
keyrate="NO"            # keyboard rate to: slow, normal, fast (or NO).
keybell="NO"            # bell to duration.pitch or normal or visual (or
NO).
keychange="NO"          # function keys default values (or NO).
cursor="NO"             # cursor type {normal|blink|destructive} (or
NO).
scrnmap="iso-8859-1_to_cp437"           # screen map in
/usr/share/syscons/scrnmaps/* (or NO).
font8x16="iso-8x16"             # font 8x16 from
/usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or NO).
font8x14="iso-8x14"             # font 8x14 from
/usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or NO).
font8x8="iso-8x8"               # font 8x8 from
/usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or NO).
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I also tried out the cons2511 entry instead of the cons25 entry
in the /etc/ttys file as discribed in
http://www.**-**.com/
Then i got the message:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Error opening terminal: cons2511 or
Unknown terminal.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
In XWindows-Terminal-Windows the german symbols are displayed correctly
but also not the arrow keys.

Thanx for the support

Hi Ewald,

if you have a keyboard with WIN-Icon (between "Strg" and "Alt", "Alt Gr"
and "Strg"), you must config with 104-key Keyboard!
I hope, it can help you!
