RedHat 7.1 graphical installer doesn't offer a french canadian keyboard
(cf) in the keyboard choices. This was possible in RedHat 7.0 installer.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Redhat 7.1 disk 1
2. Begin installation procedure
3. Keyboard selection doesn't offer french canadian keyboard (cf)

French canadian keyboard can be installed manually later (for example in
XF86Config-4 file by choose ca_enhanced)
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-04-20 11:20:32 EDT
Are you sure that the 7.0 installer did this?  As far as I know, 7.1 has all the
choices that 7.0 did plus a few more.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-04-20 12:43:42 EDT
I never could use the Redhat 7.0 graphical installer but only the text mode 
installer and yes I am sure that in text-mode I was able to select the french 
canadian keyboard. Is there maybe a difference between the keyboard choices in 
text-mode and graphical mode?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-04-20 14:24:08 EDT
Yes, there is a difference between the text and the GUI keyboard selection.  If
you try the text installer in 7.1, you will find the cf layout.  The keyboard
screen in the GUI and text installer needs to be unified.  I'll mark this as a
request for enhancement so that it will be considered for a future release.
Thanks for your report.

There's not enough time to rework this screen at the moment.  Deferring.
