Description olli.andres 2000-04-11 00:02:03 UTC
I can't believe that after all this time, Redhat is still not able to deal
with the concept that there are other countries in the world with different
keyboard layouts. Sorry if I sound annoyed, but it really leaves me
perlexed, as this has been happening ever since I've known Redhat (since
4.x or something).

Let me make my complaint absolutely clear:

1. I install Redhat 6.2 in Switzerland.
2. I specify "sg" as my keyboard layout.
3. Redhat finishes installing and boots into X.
4. XTerm uses US KEYBOARD.
5. Netscape uses US KEYBOARD.

*** ("sg" == Swiss German) != United States ***

I install linux A LOT, and this is REALLY ANOYING.

Also, it would really be great if you wouldn't assume that people want
Gnome by default.

Would you like to submit patches?

Red Hat doesn't officially support Swiss operation, so our support in that
department mostly comes from 3rd party contributors.  Our tier-1 supported
systems are English, German, French, and Spanish.
