Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 445281
Firstboot don't use /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
Last modified: 2008-05-06 13:10:41 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):
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.
german keytable isn't used
it should be used
German keyboard is also working fine in TTYs.
This will be fixed in the next build of firstboot. Thanks for the report.

Thanks. Will this be integrated in Fedora 9 Final?
