 sorry that i use this way but i have a problem with netbsd on my

 i have a german keyboard on my sparcstation, it works corect under the
 x-window system,
 but under console the keyboard layout is "US" - WHY ? a friend tell me that
 sun-keyboards have a hardware defined layout ??

 and why does the "wsconsctl -k -w encoding=de" command not work on my sun ??
 (under netbsd-i386 it works!)

 ....another question:
 i have a SUN Audio device connected to my sparc-10, does it work under
 netbsd ?

 i found no answer on my questions in the manuals.
 sorry but my sparcstation and the netbsd on it, is my first contact
 to a unix like system, I'm learning quickly, but my job is it to
 manage a Windows-NT network, this stupid job is blocking my brain
 ...from time to time ;-))
