Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179380
Keymap for norwegian keyboard is bogus
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:22 EST
Description of problem:
When selecting no (for Norwegian) for keyboard in anaconda,
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard ends up with
however, the keymap:
is very wrong. The funny thing is that
works very well.
Can we please just remove no.map.gz (or moved to no-legacy.map.gz)
and rename no.latin-1.map.gz to no.map.gz?
Would be great if this was included in FC5...
Renaming keyboards would just cause unnecesary deviation from upstream; simply
set KEYTABLE to no-latin1 if you want it.
AFAICS the no-latin1 layout is not the standard Norwegian layout (judging by
no-latin1.doc and a comparison with the layout at
http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/reference/keyboards.mspx). Anyway, if you
want to change the default layout, please file a bug against rhpl.
I've asked Andries to replace no.map with no-standard.map (written by Stian
Sletner, distributed by Debian) for the next release of kbd.
