Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446345
firstboot does not allow input of english (latin) characters when using russian locale ru_RU.UTF8
Last modified: 2008-07-31 15:35:57 EDT
Description of problem:
When choosing russian language and keyboard during Fedora installation, firstboot is using that keyboard
layout as a default, and provides no way to input latin characters (toggle-layout key combination, which is
pressing both shift keys, does not work either). This results in being unable to create a user, or do any
other configuration which involves text input. I believe users from Greece, Ukraine or any country with
cyrillic alphabet will have a similar problem.
