Description Derrien 2008-05-21 11:46:35 EDT
Description of problem:

we can read :

"In Fedora 9, the XKB settings are read from /etc/sysconfig/keyboard, which
gives users the correct layout. The KEYTABLE option, configured in
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard, also sets the layout for X."

But how it works ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X.Org X Server (1.5.0 RC 1)
Release Date: 5 September 2007

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

No xorg.conf

[root (Fedora 9) ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/keyboard

Actual results:
The default keyboard (us qwerty)

Expected results:
The french keyboard (azerty)

Additional info:
system installed via kickstart

FWIW, 906-5 in rawhide fixes this issue.
