Description Paul 2003-10-12 08:28:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
I chose Dvorak as my keyboard layout.  When booting (nogui) I get the message
"Loading default keymap (Dvorak): failed".  Even so, the keymap is correct after
booting.  If I specify the absolute path to the keymap file, the message changes
from "failed" to "OK".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-7.34-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose Dvorak as your keyboard layout.
2. Reboot.


Actual Results:  "Loading default keymap (Dvorak): failed"
Yet, the kaymapping is correct.

Expected Results:  "Loading default keymap (Dvorak): OK"

Additional info:

My keyboard is a regular US keyboard with the keycaps moved to match the Dvorak
layout.

Under Red Hat 9.0 I have to use the absolute path to the Dvorak keymap file or I
would end up with the US keymap.  The real problem seems to have been corrected
in Fedora Test 2, but the "failed" message still appears.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-13 19:59:31 UTC
What happens if you change rc.sysinit from:

  if [ -n "$KEYTABLE" -a -d "/lib/kbd/keymaps" ]; then
     KEYMAP=$KEYTABLE
  fi

to:

  if [ -n "$KEYTABLE" -a -d "/lib/kbd/keymaps" ]; then
     KEYMAP=$KEYTABLE.map
  fi

?

Comment 2 Paul 2003-10-22 04:23:02 UTC
I'm sorry.  I'm running my system headless right now and I haven't been able to
get the serial console to show boot messages.  In other words, I haven't been
able to try the suggested script mod.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-22 19:25:48 UTC
This change works for me in testing. Will be fixed in 7.41-1.
