Change Keymap

The default keymap is English. For the German users the keys "Z" and "Y" are reversed and some special characters like "/" or "*" are not on the keys where they should be.
To change the default keymap, just edit the file
/etc/vconsole.conf
and change the line starting with "keymap" to your desired country. For Germany the line should look like
keymap=de

You need to reboot for the settings to take effect.
