Description Joachim Frieben 2006-05-07 14:24:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Current "anaconda" uses a corrupted keymap for the layout type
"German latin1 w/ no dead keys".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system from current "boot.iso".
2. Choose layout "German latin1 w/ no dead keys".
3. Try to enter the http download directory path.
Actual results:
The combination <shift>+number yields wrong results. The slash
character is not accessible via "<shift>+7". Instead a curly
bracket "{" is printed.

Expected results:
Character output should correspond to the keyboard layout.

Additional info:
It is necessary to get back to the keyboard layout selection menu.
The standard US keyboard layout is chosen and works correctly.
After the installation is completed, "system-config-keyboard" is
used to set the layout to "German latin1 w/ no dead keys". Now,
the keymap is correct!

Yeah, something has gone wrong with keyboard layout stuff the middle of last
week.  Chris was investigating
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2006-05-10 11:15:37 EDT
Please try the next build and let us know if this works for you.  Peter's done
some work which fixes the us keymap at least.
Comment 3 Joachim Frieben 2006-05-10 14:14:39 EDT
Still not fixed in "anaconda-". The "us" keyboard layout
never exhibited any problem to me (?). That's why I used it as a
fallback after the german one turned out to be broken.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2006-05-10 14:25:41 EDT
No, the next build. is the current one.
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2006-05-16 10:15:59 EDT
This should now be fixed in
Comment 6 Joachim Frieben 2006-05-16 14:21:05 EDT
Tried today and works as expected. Thanks!
