Text mode anaconda does not load the icelandic keymap
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem: the IS (is-latin1) keymap is not loaded in text mode
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot FC5 test3 boot.iso.
2. Select Icelandic and the Icelandic keymap.
3. Select a NFS server for install.
The US keymap is still in use untill the GUI kicks in.
The Icelandic keymap should be activated
On the US keymap, the upper left hand key (labled with ~ and ` on a US qwerty
keyboard) will type `~ (unshifted then shifted). How should that key behave on
the Icelandic map? Or, is there a better test I could be using to see if the US
or Icelandic map is loaded?
The best test I can think of is that Shift-7 should give the / character.
The key on the right of the "." key (where the / is on US keyboards is I think)
should give the "Ã¾" character.
Also, you can look at:
This was fixed posted FC5 Test 3. I've verified that the Icelandic map is
loaded during the first stage of the installation process (e.g., when you select
NFS for the installation source).
One thing that I have noticed is that the screen widgets are not correct for
certain screens under Icelandic. I've logged this as something to fix for FC6.
