From Bugzilla Helper:

When configuring the keyboard, if pt-latin1 is selected, there is no lower 
a tilde caracter, but capital A tilde is OK.
Versions 6.2 and 7.0 where correct.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
2.keyboard configuration

The keymaps are part of console-tools.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-20 12:59:04 EST
Where is the tilde key located on your keyboard?

IBM keyboard
Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-03-12 06:19:28 EST
Are you sure this worked in 7.0? pt-latin1.kmap is the exact same file in 7.0 
and 7.1.

Comment 6 cealmeida 2001-03-18 00:21:34 EST
You're right.
I re-tested 7.0 and it doesn't work either.

In 7.0 a tilde is missing but also A tilde, o tilde and O tilde are missing.
As the pt-latin.kmap is the same, maybe the problem is a missing definition in
the default font: version 7.1 uses (lat0-sun16). Is it the same font used in 7.0?

This should be fixed with the move from console-tools to kbd in rawhide.
