Almost the last thing in Chapter 6 is "Configuring your keyboard." It
"Run the following command to patch the current default keymap into the
kernel source. You will have to repeat this command whenever you unpack
a new kernel:"
loadkeys -m /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/defkeymap.map.gz > \
The target above /usr/src/linux-2.4.22... indicates that linux should
be unpacked into /usr/src. Yet, early in Chapter 6 linux is unpacked
into /source. Later, in Chapter 7, there is no indication that it is
proper to unpack linux for kernel compilation into /usr/src rather
than /sources. Where should linux be unpacked for proper compilation
of the kernel?
"Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of
thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible,
because there will be no words in which to express it."
