Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-03-10 08:04:26 EST
This is with 6.1.98

I specified this in the kickstart file (I'll attach it):

keyboard no

The XF86Config file contains this:

#    XkbOptions  "ctrl:nocaps"
    XkbRules    "xfree86"
    XkbModel    "pc101"
    XkbLayout   "us"

That is, it has an american keyboard setting.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-03-13 15:56:59 EST
This should be fixed in the final product.  There was a problem with the
Norwegian keymap mapping.  I will test this out here in the lab.
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2000-03-15 15:19:59 EST
I am not able to replicate this in the test lab.  Specifying "no" as the
keyboard in the kickstart config file results in the keyboard being set
correctly in both /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and /etc/X11/XF86Config, so I am
assumming that we fixed this in the last round of keyboard fixes just before the
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-03-26 17:30:59 EST
Reproduced in lab with 6.2 final.
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-03-27 10:10:59 EST
Not just Norwegian keyboard - same problem with German and Italian, and thus
probably all foreign keyboards
