Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 744641
system-setup-keyboard ignored KEYTABLE
Last modified: 2011-11-28 19:21:05 EST
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
Accidentally removed in:
Marking as F16 blocker, this really shouldn't happen.
system-setup-keyboard-0.8.8-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
system-setup-keyboard-0.8.8-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
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

Update it with:

as soon as you are able to.

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.
