Description of problem:
I selected the Dvorak keyboard layout during installation but
firstboot still uses a qwerty layout.
When rhgb runs before firstboot the keyboard layout is incorrect in
When rhgb does not run the keyboard layout in firstboot is correct.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Dvorak keyboard layout during installation.
2. Boot newly installed system with rhgb enabled.
3. Attempt to type a username in firstboot's "Create User" step.
Actual Results: I type "David" on the Dvorak keyboard and "Ha.gh" is
entered into the text box.
After reading Bug #100686 I removed /etc/sysconfig/firstboot, ran
"chkconfig --add firstboot", and rebooted. I booted removing the
'rhgb' kernel argument and adding 'nogui' argument. rhgb did not
start and firstboot had the proper Dvorak keyboard layout. I tested
this on two systems.
