Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10109
bad X keyboard configuration with kickstart - 6.2
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
This is with 6.1.98
I specified this in the kickstart file (I'll attach it):
The XF86Config file contains this:
# XkbOptions "ctrl:nocaps"
That is, it has an american keyboard setting.

The kickstart file
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.
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
Reproduced in lab with 6.2 final.
Not just Norwegian keyboard - same problem with German and Italian, and thus
probably all foreign keyboards

An NFS kickstart test case for the lab
Fixed in internal development version.
