I have in /etc/rc.conf a line


to set the keyboard to German; as the system in question is on an USB
key for boot and sometimes used in other laptops with QWERTY layout, I
would like to have it adapt itself to the actual layout without changing
anything before booting in rc.conf and without asking the user to press
a key ... is there some way to detect the actual keyboard layout
