Description Yulia Kopkova 2011-03-01 05:15:06 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda does not show any hint about keymaps switching (shift-shift). 
This is important for example for Cyrillic group languages. If one choose Russian keymap it become effective immediately. Later non-experienced users may meet a problem how to switch between Russian/English languages: root password input, etc.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Fedora installation
2. Choose Russian keymap
3. Continue to root password input
4. Imagine you do not know shift-shift key combination
5. Try to find out how to switch between languages
Actual results:
No hint about switching between languages

Expected results:
Hint about switching between languages

anaconda just uses the system-config-keyboard screen, so the change would have to happen there.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 12:52:29 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.

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:
