How can I change Keyboard Layout to German?


I installed SLES10SP3.
When I login to the console the keyboard layout is US.
This SLES runs in a VM under MS Virtual Server 2005.

When I login to the Desktop I changed in Yast2 everything to
It took after a reboot.
When I first login to the Desktop with init 5 the keyboard layout is
When I change Runlevel with init 3 the keyboard layout is still
When I reboot and login directly to the console the keyboard layout is
US again.
I want to CHANGE this. How come it doesn't work?
All LC Variables other than those mentioned below show POSIX
LC_ALL=        //empty

Would s.o. have an idea?

Thank you

I don't know how I did it but now I have the keyboard layout in
Maybe because I updated the VM from the DVD-image.
However, there a still no Umlaute like �� etc. which belong to the
german language.
How could I get those?

Thank you

how do you access the SLES system ?
Are you local on the MS server and have there a console to the server
open or do you connect via vnc ? Maybe this is a codepage problem on the
viewing side.

no I connect via RDP to the Server that hosts the VM.
Then I log in to the VM.
When I log in to the console I have no Umlaute, when I login to the
GUI, I do have umlaute.

Any other ideas?

I found it now and leave the solution here.
In the RunlevelEditor in yast2 I found earlykbd which was only
configured for Runlevel 5.
I added in the expert mode runlevel 3.
This did it already.
However it also showed me the command which could be used at the
console (perhaps in Runlevel 1 some time):
