Notes on install using base-iso, revisited

Followed Installation instructions from WIKI and ran into some minor glitches :

1. Keymaps, enumerating :
Code: [Select]
ls /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/**/*.map.gz
- enumerates amiga, atari and sun subdirectories only
- lists 22 variations for 11 country-codes
Code: [Select]
ls -R /usr/share/kbd/keymaps 
- lists all above plus i386, include, mac and ppc subdirectories
- variations and country-codes are a multiple of the above and most importantly includes azerty, qwerty and qwertz layouts

2. Keymaps, loading :
Code: [Select]
loadkeys xyz
- is only valid till reboot
- editing /etc/conf.d/keymaps before reboot is a necessity

3. Partitions, mounting
mkdir /mnt/boot and mkdir /mnt/home can only be executed after
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt has been executed

4. Basestrap
All editors, in casu nano,have been dropped from base metapackage and need to be added seperately. 

5. Xorg, cleanup ongoing
Install of xorg is problematic due to cleanup.
Accepting of default modules results in errors.
As of 20200101 the offending module is xorg-server-xdmx ; installing all but this module resolves.[/code]
