Description Sebastian Vahl 2008-05-05 17:39:37 EDT
Description of problem:
After installing a actual local spin of the german KDE live image and a reboot,
firstboot seems to don't use the german keytable (eg. y and z are switched). 
This sounds like bug #441009 but not as bug #438246 because X itself is working
with the correct keyboard layout (in kdm, KDE and a failsafe session with xterm).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set KEYTABLE in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard to "de-latin1-nodeadkeys"
2. Switch to a TTY
3. run "firstboot"
4. go to the screen to define a user
5. Hit "y". If you have an englisch keyboard "z" should be displayed.
Actual results:
german keytable isn't used

Expected results:
it should be used

Additional info:
German keyboard is also working fine in TTYs.

Thanks. Will this be integrated in Fedora 9 Final?
