Description of problem:
When I rebooted after installation I found firstboot was using the
US keyboard. When it finished and gdm was started I found gdm was
using the correct, non-US keyboard.
This bug was present in all the previous betas.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pick english as inatllation language
2. Select french keyboard for the install
3. Complete install and reboot
Actual Results: See aboove
firstboot should use whatever the keymap is specified in the XF86Config file.
Can you attach that file?
Actually, nevermind. This is an rhgb problem since rhgb is somehow defaulting
to a US keymap. Since firstboot inherits rhgb's X server, it's picking up the
US keymap. When firstboot ends, that X session dies and gdm starts up a new one
which pulls the correct keymap from the XF86Config file
Changing component to rhgb.
