Unable to change keyboard layout

Hi to everyone

Once again I tried to modify my keyboard , because I am crazy keyborad can not be changed using


also I tried to modify /boot/solaris/bootenv.rc

but I tried opensolaris and my keyboard works perfectly

So my question is

If you have not tried this already, try setting the same values of these settings into your other O/S:

echo "$TERM"
stty -a

you must completely log out of the GUI, then log in as root using the "command line" option under session type on the login screen. Once you are logged in as root, run the kdmconfig command. It will walk you through the process of setting the keyboard type. Once that is done, log out of the root account and log back in as yourself
