I guess the answer is no, but still worth a try getting it documented
To dump the current console keymap,
dumpkeys can be used.
But is there any way to get the original name back? (That can be used to call
loadkeys with the original system mapfiles)
The scenario is a system that is started (livecd, or any system) - but then a chroot is created to create a new installation. Is there any way to get the keymap name that should be used in the configuration of the system in chroot.
The only way I can think of right now is to use
dumpkeys to get existing map, and then
loadkeys on all existing keymaps in the new chroot, and then
dumpkeys on the loaded one and compare with the original.
