What version of Vector Linux? ( cat /etc/vector-version )
# Translating the comments to Flemish or Wallon wouldn't hurt :)
if [ -x /usr/bin/loadkeys ]; then
# Open other consoles with [left-Alt] & [Up-arrow]
echo "alt keycode 103 = Spawn_Console" | /usr/bin/loadkeys
Option "XkbLayout" "be"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbRules" "evdev"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
arto:$ setxkbmap be
It took me forever to find "m" when trying to undo this after testing
It did have trouble typing certain characters the first time they were tried, but after that it worked fine ( I think).
Get a list of possible choices for LANG:
arto:$ locale -av | grep -B2 -A9 'title |.*Belgium' | grep 'locale:\|title |\|codeset |\|^[[:blank:]]*$' | tee taallijstNote: Every utf8 locale I have seen for locations that use the Euro have the Euro symbol in LC_MONETARY already, so using utf8 gets you the Euro symbol
-- no need to choose between "utf8" and "@euro" just for that. I'd appreciate knowing if someone comes across an exception.
As root, edit /etc/profile.d/lang.sh to use your choice from that list ( nl_BE.utf8 , for example):
# Set the system locale. (no, we don't have a menu for this ;-)
# For a list of locales which are supported by this machine, type:
# locale -a
# en_US is the Slackware default locale:
# 'C' is the old Slackware (and UNIX) default, which is 127-bit
# ASCII with a charmap setting of ANSI_X3.4-1968. These days,
# it's better to use en_US or another modern $LANG setting to

You have to logout and log in for that to be used.
Some people have mentioned odd problems when using 'export LANG='. If you have problems, try 'export LC_ALL=' instead.
All of the above is supposed to be handled by a configuration tool, "vasm" or "vasm-legacy". Whether your copy of that can handle it for you depends on which VL version you have. If it's ANY 7.1, vasm-legacy cannot handle it now, but will soon -- that's the next item to be fixed.
Your power problem might be an issue we have had with beta versions. We need to know your Vector version to see if that is the case for you.
