Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 25470
bad slovenian keyboard during TUI install
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I did an text mode install ( my GeForce2MX is not supported in GUI mode,
it seems , as the install failed back to text mode ) of RH7.0/i386
and selected slovenian keyboard.
Then in fdisk I noticed that some keys were not correct.
It was the same on all VTs.
The letter keys ( qwerty ... ) were OK,
the numbers also , but the keys near RETURN were bad;
they either had the US mapping or something bogus:
'[' and ']' were as in US keyboards,
the '=' key should be '+' ( '*' with SHIFT ),
but it was printing '^' and with SHIFT '`'.
The keyboard in the installed system was OK.
Was this a CD-ROM? Also, was this on Red Hat Linux 7 or the Fisher beta?
Can you attach your /etc/sysconfig/keyboard file? I think you just have the US
It was a Redhat Linux version 7.0 on i386, booted from the
CD-ROM number 1. ( This version is also known as Guiness )
The keyboard was bad just during the installation,
afterwards in the installed system , it was OK ( slovenian,
as it should be ).
And it was not set US, as the 'y' and 'z' were positioned
properly ( they are switched in 'slovenian', compared to US ).
The '=' was different from both 'slovenian' and 'US'.
In US is returns =/+ ( second character is with SHIFT ),
in 'slovenian' it returns +/*, but during my installation
it returned ^/~.
We have addressed many keyboard issues for the next release. Please try the
Fisher public beta and reopen if the problem persists. Brock, can you verify
that this problem has been fixed in Fisher?
Seems OK in Fisher.
