firstboot doesn't do anything special with keyboards.  Reassigning.

And anyway, this bug report doesn't actually say what's wrong or give any useful
information for debugging or reproducing.

Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-19 12:51:51 UTC
Yeah sorry about that. what information do you want?
When I press this letter on my keyboard "ð"  in the "Firstname box" it does 
not work. I press it many many times and nothing happens no letter or sympol
appear in the firstname field box some other keys and my keyboard don't respond
as well.In Gnome/Terminal they work, open gedit press the key(s) and presto the
letter appears. Me happy... 

Comment 3 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-21 09:38:13 UTC
Did an fresh ( ext4 )installation
Turned off firstboot
update the system
turned on fyrstboot
and now all keys work :) 

Good work :)

This can be closed as FIXED.. 
( if it makes it to final :) )

Comment 4 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-21 09:40:49 UTC
Hum could it be that this works because the changes to xorg.conf 
come after firstboot? hence this is NOT FIXED..

Comment 5 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-21 10:01:04 UTC
Yes confirmed this has nothing to do with any updates being done..

Just did a fresh install and this 
time just turned off firstboot booted to 
runlevel 5, logged in as root 
turn the firstboot service back on 
and rebooted and it's fixed.

changes to xorg.conf have to be done before firstboot starts
