I can confirm this also happends with bulgarian keyboard selected.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2005-09-27 13:42:47 UTC
Has this been fixed in FC devel at least?

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-10-25 15:16:40 UTC
What is required to be able to input English text in firstboot if X is set up to
use a different keyboard by default?
