I have verified this problem but the actual xkb keymap comes from the
XFree86 package, not redhat-config-keyboard.  Changing components to

I google'd for a Croation keyboard layout and found:

It looks like the bug is not with the button just to the right of the
0 key.  It is with the button just to the left of the right Shift key.
 It should be displaying "-" when pressed and "_" when Shift is held
down.  Instead, it is displaying "/" and "?" just like it does in English.

It appears to me that the kbd keymap is doing the right thing and the
xkb keymap should behave the same way as kbd.

I'm not quite sure what the correct behaviour should be for this.
I'm inclined to agree with Brent however, as that seems the
most sensible to me.  I'm going to close this as "NOTABUG", however
if you still think there is a bug present for the croatian
keyboard, I recommend filing a bug report in the upstream bugzilla at
freedesktop.org, against the xkbdesc component.  The Xkb maintainer
is more authoritative in such matters and responds rather quickly
to such issues.

If you file a report upstream, and paste the URL here, we'll track
the issue for you, and consider backporting any fixes that become

Thanks for your report.

*Ako zelite ovo rjesiti izvedite ovu naredbu:

cp /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwertz/slovene.map.gz

*If you want to fix this execute this command...

I suggest that you (fedora developers) also do this. Croatian and
Slovene keymaps are identical.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-01 07:12:23 EDT
This bug was flagged "UPSTREAM" for tracking in upstream bugzilla,
however there's no upstream bug URL present for us to
investigate/track the status of.

I'm assuming the problem no longer exists in Fedora Core development
builds (rawhide), and closing the report as "RAWHIDE".  If the
problem exists in rawhide xorg-x11 still, please file a bug report
in the X.Org upstream bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org and
paste the URL here if you'd like us to track it.

Thanks in advance.

just add the following line 

key <AB10> { [ minus, underscore, dead_belowdot, dead_abovedot ] };

to the /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/hr   file
