Description Need Real Name 2000-09-07 19:22:13 EDT
Please remove RH specific patch of
console-data-1999.08.29/keymaps/i386/include/qwert{y|z}-layout.inc
which add to these keymaps in include "euro" chars euro and cent.
Symbol cent is not a part of most iso-8859-? tables and composing
euro conflicts with some others e with accent chars.
Currently it is not possible to load keymaps which are based on these
partial keymaps and are not iso-8859-1 for ex. sk-*.kmap.

Looking into it...
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-20 15:11:19 EDT
Fixed in console-tools-0.3.3-29
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2000-10-27 17:37:01 EDT
There was removed only one of two bugs introduced by euro patch



Because sk* keymaps use AltGr_Lock to switch between two
alphabets there is by pressing key e generated symbol currency
instead of symbol e in second alphabet (I didn't checked others
keymaps).

If you really need symbols contained in euro.inc write directive
include "euro.inc" to all keymaps they know this symbols and
don't use AltGr_Lock (or tell me not using partial keymaps from
include directory and I will rewrite sk* keymaps).
