sv-latin1.map.gz layout should be named se-latin1.map.gz

Tested with Phoebe, and a fresh install.
I selected the "Swedish" keyboard during the install, and I also got one
in X. However, when I use the console, Swedish characters don't work.
Instead, it uses an American keyboard layout, contrary to what was selected in
anaconda during the installation.
See what you have in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard.
Try to run /etc/init.d/keytable restart.
When keytable script will not work, try to run in by:
sh -x /etc/init.d/keytable restart
and grab what you see.
keytable script should be run on startup (see ntsysv or chkconfig --list | grep

Output from /etc/init.d/keytable restart
"MISSLYCKADES" is the Swedish translation of "FAILED"
"LÃ¤ser in" = "Loading"
"tangentbordslayout" = "keyboard layout"
"systemtypsnitt" = "system font"

Keytable is on on all runlevels except 0 and 6 on the system.
Sorry, the output is not complete because script "restart" call self with
"start". So try again please:
sh -x /etc/init.d/keytable start

I don't have /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/se-latin1.map.gz. Try:
and pick up one of available keymaps. Modify /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and try to
use keytable script to load keymap.
The bug could be:
a) Anaconda should use another keymap because the se-latin1 keymap not exist
anymore in kbd tarball
b) kbd RPM package do not contain your keymap (bad SPEC file or so)
Look in kbd SRC package and you will se if your keymap is inside tarball (use mc
or try to build RPM package and look into BUILD directory.
The "se-latin1" value is correct; that's the same value as has always been for
the standard Swedish keyboard.
The problem seems indeed to be in kbd: A
does not exist anymore in Phoebe (it existed in previous releases), but instead
there is now a
As keyboard layouts should be defined based on country/region (please correct me
if I'm wrong) and not on language codes (sv is the language code for Sweden, se
is the country code), I think there is a clear bug here. Especially since the
other "se" layouts weren't renamed.
Seems like this is a dup of the (non-beta-only) bug 80391.
