That does strip it down, but one could have just used a second piped grep
to find the one for keyboard -configuration.
pi@picnc:~/kernel-rt-preempt/linux-rpi-4.9.y $ locate README.Debian|grep

Iiyyuupp. But only sorta. I ditched Amigados3.9. I've only ever owned one
windows machine. I needed a lappy for when I was half-way across the
country playing visiting fireman at the KREX complex in Grand Junction
CO, or at WDHS in Iron Mountain MI. Circuit City would not sell it to
me with a clean hard drive so I was stuck with an OEM xp install.
Buggier than a 10 day old road kill in August too. And by the time I
loaded it to go to the airport, it had a ManDrake install on it. And the
xp partition got nuked 2 weeks later when I found the windows drivers
for its radio couldn't make it work either. That thing has a pcmcia
card with a bcm4318 on it in it, back when bcm was suffering from the
winders only virus. I called bcm, and they hung up when they heard the
word linux, we don't support it, click. That blacklisted bcm in my book
for over a decade. The only way to fix jerks like that is to cost them
sales until such time as the sales dept gets the message.

Actually, my fav reader for such tomfoolery is less. More can't scroll
backwards. Ya gotta love the *nix sense of humor. Less has everything
More doesn't. :)

Thats not an editor, its an os competing with linux!
