Description Alan Cox 2006-06-02 19:30:49 EDT
If your locale is en_GB.UTF_8 (and maybe others, untested) then running
system-config-keyboard on a console when X cannot be started produces a mangled
display that looks like incorrect use of unicode versus graphics drawing
characters. This makes it damn near impossible for anyone but an expert to fix a
keyboard config problem on a server box.

LC_ALL=en_GB.UTF-8 system-config-keyboard --text on FC-5 looks fine to me, as
does rawhide.   

what does /etc/sysonfig/i18n say?  rpm -q kbd; rpm -V kbd

S.5....T    /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/
missing     /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/
missing     /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/

Umm.... escaped i386 bits

Fixed and now works
