Description Alexandre Oliva 2002-07-31 18:52:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020722

Description of problem:
When br-abnt2 is selected as the keyboard at install time, anaconda generates
XF86Config with XkbModel "pc102", instead of "abnt2".  This causes at least two
keys not to function properly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose Brazilian (br-abnt2) keyboard at install time
2.After installation, try to type ], }, \ or | in the X login screen.	

Actual Results:  You get \, |, < and >, respectively.  Oops.

Expected Results:  Just what I typed in :-)

I failed to mention that this problem affects only XFree86, not text mode, which
is why I thought it was an anaconda problem, not a redhat-config-keyboard one. 
Jeremy has clarified that redhat-config-keyboard holds the config data, even
though it doesn't set up XF86Config itself.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-08-01 16:11:54 UTC
Should be fixed in redhat-config-keyboard-0.9.7-2.  Anaconda has it's own way of
writing out the initial XF86Config file, but redhat-config-keyboards can now
change the values in XF86Config after install.  If anaconda is writing out the
wrong values, please open a new bug against it.

QA, please verify.

Still having issues with this one.  The bug is actually in rhpl, so changing
component and attaching diff.

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-08-11 13:36:22 UTC
Ah, the original bug was that redhat-config-keyboard wasn't modifying
XF86Config.  So I fixed that, only to find out that rhpl's keyboard list was
incorrect.  Will fix now.

Comment 7 Brent Fox 2002-08-11 13:44:10 UTC
Should be fixed in rhpl 0.34-1.  Thanks for the patch, Jay.

Comment 8 Jay Turner 2002-08-16 18:49:44 UTC
Fix confirmed in rhpl-0.39-1.
