Description Mike Bartling 2002-05-13 06:52:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
In the Basic Configuration menu in the Kickstart Configurator, when the United
Kingdom keyboard is selected from the dropdown menu the resulting ks.cfg file
has the following entry;

#System keyboard
keyboard gb

The problem is that the installer will not accept gb, but rather uk as the
keyboard type. This stops the installation being automatic as it has to query
the user for the correct keyboard type.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Kickstart Configurator
2. Select the UK keyboard type and view the ks.cfg file

Actual Results:  #System keyboard
keyboard gb

Expected Results:  #System keyboard
keyboard uk

Thanks for your report.  I've fixed the bug now and ksconfig-2.0-8 should appear
in rawhide soon.
