Description Pekka Savola 2000-06-13 20:21:06 UTC
Using the latest updates disk and the latest boot.img/bootnet.img 
(CDROM/FTP Server).

Beginning the installation with 'text updates'.

In keyboard layout selection menu, pressing 'F' yields different 
selection in bootnet/boot.  The one goes to 'fi', the other to 'fi-latin1'.
Both layouts still exist in both cases, the hotkey algorithm just seems to 
be different (or one layout is missing from one).

Comment 1 Brock Organ 2000-06-13 22:06:56 UTC
verified ... the inconsistency occurs in selecting the keyboard in stage1 (ie
bootnet.img w/fi-latin1 as first "f" key entry) vs selecting the keyboard in
stage2 (boot.img w/CDROM w/fi as first "f"  key entry) ...

Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2000-06-16 15:13:44 UTC
very minor, remind me for next release.

Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2000-10-23 19:30:58 UTC
This has been fixed in 7.0 (text mode).  I've had some reports that this might have been
broken in graphical install -- haven't checked that out myself.
