Description of problem:
Because older systems still have be2-latin1 configured in
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard it will fail to use the right keyboard-layout the next
reboot. The kbd-package should at least check this and replace it with be-latin1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH 7.3 with be2-latin1 layout
2.Upgrade to RH 8.0
3.Reboot (and find that it fails and goes to Qwerty)
Actual Results: It uses Qwerty, you have to fix it manually.
Expected Results: It should have changed my be2-latin1 layout to be-latin1.
the kbd description labels keep changing release-to-release... esp after the big
euro and latin1->latin9 switchover. As a feature for a future release, this
issue (standardized descriptors for both console and X keyboard settings) needs
to be addressed for the sake of compatibility and upgrades.
