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):
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.
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.

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.
Should be fixed in rhpl 0.34-1. Thanks for the patch, Jay.
Fix confirmed in rhpl-0.39-1.
