Description of problem:
from many years linux console can work with the "it2" keymap
a sligthy modified italian layout. i saw that xorg is still missing
a it2 layout so i created the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it2 file.
to see what the it2 is all about just check this:
zcat /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/it2.map.gz |head -n 40
Note: it2 is just a logical layout, and is slighty different from the
it2.map.gz give also some wrong indication on how to use it2 under X
(it seems that has been written on 1995!)
maybe the it2 layout is not much used but i think that it make no sense
to be able to select it from system-config-keyboard and then not be able
to use is under xorg.
with the file i created a user can select it in xorg.conf:
Option "XkbLayout" "it2"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run system-config-keyboard
2. select it2
3. switch to the tty1 and see that the layout is "it2" while you
can't have the same basic layout with X
