Description Dawid Gajownik 2005-10-23 15:36:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051012 SeaMonkey/1.1a

Description of problem:
Anaconda and system-config-keyboard set “pl” keymap up when you choose Polish keyboard. This keymap has some drawbacks (for instance SHIFT+F6 does not work correctly in Midnight Commander), so it would be better to use “pl2” one. I've asked people on pl.comp.os.linux newsgroup and find out that other distributions (for example PLD which is made by Poles) use “pl2”.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run s-c-k
2. Choose Polish keyboard
3. cat /etc/sysconfig/keyboard

I have one more question. I've looked at fedora-cvs-commits list and there's
only info about changes in Anaconda. What about system-config-keyboard? Should I
reopen this bug and change the component to s-c-k?
Comment 4 Dawid Gajownik 2005-12-10 06:06:53 EST
I did today network installation (boot.iso image from 9th December) and in
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard “pl2" keymap is still not set:

[root@X sysconfig]# cat keyboard
[root@X sysconfig]#

What is more, if you choose in Anaconda in the first screen Polish language,
then in the second one (“Keyboard configuration” screen) Polish keyboard is not
automatically selected as it was in FC4.

The keyboard layout dictionary needed some more work.
