Comment 1 Preston Brown 2001-08-15 13:57:20 UTC
does the sg-latin1 console keyboard mapping _always_ translate to a de_CH 
keyboard mapping in X?

Comment 2 Pius Meier 2001-08-20 09:23:33 UTC
I'm working for IBM Education also all our Machines use a standad IBM Keyboard
and there de_CH is perfect. I have never hered about an other setting als on
other Machines.
