Description Nicolas Mailhot 2005-11-15 19:45:29 UTC
Modular X uses new xkbdata wich is significantly different from the one in old xorg

At least the fr-latin9 map changed to latin9 variant of fr map

system-config-keyboard needs to be audited to make sure it can cope with the new

Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-11-15 19:49:53 UTC
Moving to rhpl as I guess that's what system-config-keyboard & anaconda use as
keyboard data

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-11-22 16:51:28 UTC
Please test after test1 and see if this works for you.

Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-11-22 18:48:36 UTC
Ok, I'll test keyboard in the install phase (won't actually overwrite/update my
install though)

Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-04 13:49:24 UTC
I can confirm system-config-keyboard works in rawhide now

Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/azerty/fr-latin9.map.gz
assuming iso-8859-1 cedilla
assuming iso-8859-1 acute
assuming iso-8859-1 diaeresis
assuming iso-8859-1 brokenbar
assuming iso-8859-1 threequarters
assuming iso-8859-1 currency
assuming iso-8859-1 onehalf
assuming iso-8859-1 onequarter

-> should not we use UTF-8 by default now ?

Didn't try anaconda yet (but it's using the same backend right ?)

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2005-12-05 14:57:06 UTC
Yes, anaconda uses the rhpl code as well so this should be fixed.  Closing based
on comment #4.  If you experience problems in anaconda, feel free to reopen.
