Steps to Reproduce:

Does this happen for the user on X or the console or both?
Comment 2 udippel 2002-07-11 00:36:23 EDT
Thanks for asking, once again I was not quite correct:
The shells are okay for any user; the X are 'us' for everyone.
Sorry for the wrong info. So it has to do with X not using the default settings

Either redhat-config-keyboard should change /etc/X11/XF86Config, or it should
tell the user to run redhat-config-xfree86 to update the X configuration. 
Problem is, redhat-config-xfree86 doesn't seeem to look at
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard, so the only way to modify the keyboard configuration
for X11 (short of reinstalling) is to edit the X11 configuration file.  Eek.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-08-01 08:17:59 EDT
In earlier builds of redhat-config-keyboard, I was munging the XF86Config file
by hand.  It worked, but it was a little ugly.  I just committed a patch that
uses pyxf86config (which redhat-config-xfree86 uses) to change the keyboard in
the XF86Config file.  Seems to work ok now.  

Should be fixed in redhat-config-keyboard-0.9.7-1.  Thanks for your report.

Closing this out, as with redhat-config-keyboard-0.9.7-2, we are indeed updating
/etc/X11/XF86Config with the keyboard change.  Please note that #71067 still
needs to be resolved.
