Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 624305
Norwegian keys are "dead" in amsn from a fresh install of Fedora 13
Last modified: 2011-06-28 10:34:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Norwegian keys are "dead" in amsn from a fresh install. Keyboard layout is correct, and the keys work in every other program I tested (empathy, pidgin, firefox, gnome-terminal and a few others). The problem occurs in both the i386 release and the x64. Compiling from source does not solve the problem either. Reinstalling Fedora 12, installing amsn there and then upgrading via yum solves the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've tried a fresh install of both the i386 release as well as the x64 release and it happens on both platforms so I guess it's easily reproducible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a fresh install of fedora 13
2. Install amsn
Norwegian keys are "dead"
Every other key is mapped correct according to the norwegian keymapping, only the three norwegian letters are missing. I have no problem reading messages with norwegian letters though.
Since an upgrade works my guess is that there is a package missing, one that you need.
If it is possible for you, can you do `rpm -qa |sort > f12upgrade.packages`
on the upgraded system and `rpm -qa |sort > f13install.packages` on the fresh install?
After that diff the files to see what packages are not there.

I'll have to do a fresh install on a virtual machine then to see if there are any differences, will do that after work today. :)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
