Comment 2 Dan Krejsa 2011-11-11 13:49:23 EST
Shortly after installing Fedora 15 in the distant past, I had created /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/us-ctrl_capslock.map.gz and modified /etc/sysconfig/keyboard to set KEYBOARD="us-ctrl_capslock" in order to use the new keymap, swapping control and caps-lock keys in text mode. When upgrading to Fedora 16 using preupgrade, after reboot into the installer the keyboard configuration code evidently determined that it did not know about the us-ctrl_capslock map, and so it popped up a dialog allowing me to chose a keymap; I chose the 'us' map. However, apparently not all the software got the word that the keymap was changed from 'us-ctrl_capslock' to 'us', and keyboard.py got the exception above due to the unknown key. I was able to recover by rebooting into the old Fedora 15 kernel and removing us-ctrl_capslock.map.gz and setting the KEYBOARD back to "us" in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard, then re-running preupgrade. This bug probably does not affect a large number of people, but it does look like a partial attempt was made to handle the case of a keymap unknown to the installer, but that attempt just did not go far enough.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-01-16 09:52:44 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '16'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on "Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2013-02-13 11:08:56 EST
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
