I've added the consolefont & keymaps init-scripts to be executed on boot, but sometimes this doesn't seem to work. Like every second time the font does not change and the keymap is the wrong one. So I have to log in myself as root and execute
Code:
/etc/init.d/consolefont start && /etc/init.d/keymaps start
by hand.

I've discovered that the script /lib/rc/sh/init-early.sh sets the font & keymap on boot, but in my case not always. Any Solutions?

Please tell me if you need output of some commands or the contents logs/config-files.

You should look at "rc-update -v show | grep consolefont" to see when the service was supposed to be started. If you just get:
Code:
          consolefont |
as the output then your problem is easily fixed via:
Code:
# rc-update add consolefont boot

Do the same thing with keymaps.

Code:
$ rc-update show | grep -e console -e keymaps

outputs:
Code:

          consolefont | boot
              keymaps | boot


So this seams not the be problem ...

If /var/log/rc.log doesn't tell you more I'd look whether any needed kernel moduelsare always loaded before - probable put them into /etc/conf.d/modules.
