Description Josiah Burroughs 2002-02-22 22:25:51 UTC
console-tools was origionally an offset of kbd due to lack of updates to the kbd package. 
It appears that things have changed and console-tools hasn't been updated in 2 years, 
and kbd is the correct package to use.

kbd also has kbdrate which used to be in util-linux and was moved (feature request)
