Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-07-01 16:31:00 EDT
Description of problem:

This is most likely a dupe of bug 519739 (for Fedora).

Basically I selected a UK keyboard during the install.  However
at first login, it chooses a US keyboard.  This could mean that
I couldn't type my password if it contained certain punctuation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RHEL 6 beta 2

How reproducible:

Happened once.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install using a UK keyboard.
2. Reboot and go through firstboot.
3. Select your name at log in window.
  
Actual results:

Selects US keyboard.

Expected results:

Should respect my installation choice.

Do you have a UK keyboard mapping on text consoles?

Yes.
Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2010-07-02 05:36:08 EDT
gdm does not seem to honor settings from /etc/sysconfig/keyboard.

Reassigning to gdm.

Looks like a dupe of Bug 595654 which should be resolved. Can you please verify you have system-setup-keyboard-0.7-4.el6 installed?

In your log, the Power Button device is added with US keyboard, prompting GNOME to assume US as well (see 595654 for mor details). This should be resolved by now, I'm rather confused that it isn't on your machine.
Comment 11 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-07-08 03:43:04 EDT
Yes, it's fixed by installing that update.
