Hello, I'm new to gentoo and am having an annoying problem. Whenever I boot I am asked to select a default keyboad layout. It does eventually default to us anyway but it slows the boot process. How can I fix this.

otisrea,

Welcome to Gentoo.

How did you do your Gentoo install?

Normally you would edit /etc/conf.d/keymaps for the console keyboard and xorg.conf, or a file in xorg.conf.d for the GUI keyboard.
Which keymap do you want to change?

Not exactly sure which one it is. Whichever is responsible at boot before there is a gui, just text scrolling.

otisrea,

That will be /etc/conf.d/keymaps.

However, prompting for a keyboard layout is not normal behaviour for a Gentoo install, which gets back to how did you do your Gentoo install?

Well actually it is sabayon and was installed using their installer. This behavior didn't start until after an update. I have no idea what was changed.

Moved from Other Things Gentoo to Unsupported Software.
Sabayon is different enough from Gentoo that we don't want to mislead Gentoo users.

Edit the file /etc/conf.d/keymaps you should be able to follow the comments.
If Sabyon has switched to systemd, that file may not exist and I can't help with systemd based systems.
