Description Peter Hutterer 2011-10-09 23:30:46 UTC
Description of problem:
If /etc/sysconfig/keyboard only has KEYTABLE but none of the xkb options set, s-s-k does not use the keytable to select XKB options but instead just dumps an essentially empty 00-system-config-keyboard.conf

Comment 4 Håkan Hjort 2011-10-10 12:18:20 UTC
I was not able to get it to update the file automatically (or at start up).  My knowledge about systemd isn't great enough for me to be able to tell if it even tried to launch it.
Manually running it, it does place the correct output into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-system-setup-keyboard.conf

Discussed at 2011-10-14 blocker review meeting. To assess blocker status of this bug we'd need to know the practical impact it has. Could this somehow be the cause of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=743281 ?

practical impact: if a /etc/sysconfig/keyboard with only the KEYTABLE option is present the user will see "us" as the keyboard layout once X is started. The users can override this through selecting a keyboard in gdm.

I don't think it's related to Bug 743281. All s-s-k does is write out an xorg.conf.d snippet and X isn't started until well after the password prompt.
