I went back to the main box and rebuilt a new kernel according the the instructions I wrote ages ago.
When I looked at the kernel config file, I noticed that the keyboard option I was looking for was already
there. But to prove that the problem was an out of date source tree, I did cvsup src-sys just for fun.
To do that, I took did this:
cp /usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile kernel-supfile
src-all is commented out.
- also uncomment
It is not necessary to cvsup the entire source tree here as I only want to cvsup the kernel source. That
will prove my point that it's just the kernel source out of date.
Then I cvsup'd my [kernel] source tree:
cvsup -h xeon kernel-supfile
Then the proof that all was now well:
# config GUS
Don't forget to do a `make depend''
Kernel build directory is ../../compile/GUS
NOTE: I did not build a kernel from this source. Nor do I suggest you do. This kernel source is newer
than my userland. They should be the same age. I went back to my XEON box and built the source the
