Description Sylvain Pasche 2007-06-05 06:48:55 EDT
Description of problem:

I chose the Swiss French keyboard layout during installation (and the English
language). However, when firstboot launches, the keyboard layout is set to
French. The Swiss French and French layouts differ considerably, so that issue
can be annoying.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Swiss French layout from the Installer (fr_CH in the console installer)
Actual results:

In firstboot, layout is French

Expected results:

layout should be Swiss French

changed automatically when I commented)
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-08-13 10:07:33 EDT
If a bug is in NEEDINFO and you comment on it, it's automatically changed to
ASSIGNED.  I'll close it out.  Thanks for verifying.
