Description of problem:
When I boot up, the system goes to the graphical loader... I select the "show
Problem 1 - cursor remains as tumbling hourglass even when it is over the "show
Problem 2 - in the show details screen as it shows each item starting and it
displays [OK]... beginning with item "Starting keytable" the square brackets are
not displayed. Instead, other characters are displayed. Like an "A" with a dot
over it etc.
This is the same at every reboot.
The messages prior to "Starting keytable" are correct, all message beginning
with "Starting keytable" have the same problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Select "Show details" on the graphical loader screen
3. Pay attention to the messages/status (OK/FAIL)
Actual Results: Beginning with "Starting keytable" the [OK] status is not
displayed correctly... the square brackets do not display properly.
Expected Results: Square brackets should be used throughout... they work
properly on the previous messages.
Just to clarify.... this happens on every boot.... not the just the "firstboot"
I didn't find the INIT componenet in the list, so chose "firstboot" as it seemed
to be the best match.
This was fixed in newer kbd packages by removing the keytable init script.
