Description Marko Myllynen 2011-06-13 08:50:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently anaconda uses kbd's keyboard database to offer keyboard layout selections during installation. However, kbd layouts do not match xkeyboard-config layouts which will be used after installation when logging in via GDM. It seems that Debian/Ubuntu are already using xkeyboard-config layouts during installation.

Please consider using xkeyboard-config for keyboard layouts in anaconda.
