5.4.1 / 5.4.2 help.msg Subject description: ISO kernel boot option help documentation error
In / directory help.msg, I believe the line after "Examples:",
puppy acpi=off pfix=fr Ignore ACPI, French keyboard layout.
puppy acpi=off pkeys=fr Ignore ACPI, French keyboard layout.
It appears that a keyboard language code may be initiated by appending (or comma appending) it to the kernel command line "pfix=" in lieu of "pkeys=", however the LAST "pfix=" on the kernel command line will be the ONLY effective "pfix=", invalidating any/all previous directives. I believe this is the behavior of all kernel command line codes (please verify), and the lack of this knowledge being in the boot help screens is the source of much confusion along with "video=" setting a console maximum. Without sufficient screen resolution (larger than the 640x480 default) many puppy necessary/setup windows have their click buttons off screen and out of reach. Attention beta/RC testers: PLEASE test your betas/RCs with the minimal/default kernel command line settings!
