[SOLVED] Arch linux installer - Wrong keyboard model / geometry

Hi there,

I just booted into an arch live USB stick to install arch on an old machine. It boots into the command line just fine. Unfortunately it doesn't recognize the keyboard correctly. Most keys work fine, but not all. E.g. if I hit "o" it prints a number...

I used the same keyboard to install Manjaro (on the same machine) and Raspbian (on another machine), where I didn't have this issue.

Does anyone know how I can adjust the arch image to my keyboard (I think it's an "Generic pc101")?

Thanks in advance!

*facepalm*

My keyboard has a key combination which locks the fn key... The fn key was just locked... I wasn't aware this was possible with the keyboard so it didn't come to mind.

This is SOLVED. smile
