Description of problem:
Coding error in /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/rhpl/keyboard.py is eaten by blank except clause.
kb = dbus.Interface(bus.get_object("org.freedesktop.Hal", kbs, 'org.freedesktop.Hal.Device'))
kb = dbus.Interface(bus.get_object("org.freedesktop.Hal", kbs), 'org.freedesktop.Hal.Device')
The consequence is that Sun keyboards doesn't work as intended.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I just noticed that the problem is solved in rawhide, so this might be a won't fix for f10 ...
We generally don't release updates of packages like rhpl since it's so tied in with anaconda and therefore doesn't really benefit from doing updates. I suppose we could if the problem is serious enough.
