I think I see what happened, you changed your keymap. For BNN as their
is no proper keymap in console package you have to rely on the Kernel
Keymap, I now remember I had the same phenomena than you after trying
to test different keymaps, even dpkg-reconfigure console-data, let me
with a broken Keymap.
If you have a completely unusable keyboard, check if you have a file
/etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz, if so just remove
/etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz, and remove any configuration of kbd or
console-tools (you have probably one of these two package), or move
them in an other location and reboot.
If you have not this file, just delete this mail and forget it!
