Does the new keyboard tool do this?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-06-12 11:26:45 EDT
Yes it does.  It modifies /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 for
the new keyboard layout.  It also calls setxkbmap and loadkeys to load the new
keymap for the console and the current X session. 

However, it currently modifies the XF86Config-4 file manually.  It would be nice
to use Alex's new XFree86 library to do the modfication instead of hvaing the
file intelligence inside redhat-config-keyboard.  

Also, redhat-config-keyboard does not currently have a text mode interface. 
Once I implement that, we could replace kbdtool if we want to.  notting, any
opinions here?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-06-12 11:28:25 EDT
Having a text mode tool would be good, yes.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-06-12 11:47:29 EDT
I meant on replacing kbdconfig altogether.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-06-12 11:54:52 EDT
If we have a new text tool, sure.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-11-26 16:54:50 EST
A text mode now exists for redhat-config-keyboard.  Just run it with
'redhat-config-keyboard --text'.  It will default to text mode if an X server
isn't currently available as well.  This should resolve this bug report.

redhat-config-keyboard-1.0.1-7 should be in Rawhide now.
