Brent, we probably need to move some of the isys.loadKeymap() stuff into
redhat-config-keyboard so that it can set up keymaps without requiring loadkeys
and a complete kbd keyboard map layout present.

Wouldn't it make more sense to move it into rhpl?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-11-01 16:47:26 EST
Added some code so this will work in CVS

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
