Non-US keyboard layouts don't work in GUI install
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
Non-US keyboard layouts don't work during GUI install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The one from Phoebe CD1 , CD3 contains the following RPM :
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start a GUI install
2. select "Slovenian" keyboard layout
3. proceed until a text box can be used to test the keyboard
Keyboard uses US layout, not Slovenian.
( the key between "t" and "u" prints "y" )
Keyboard operates in Slovenian mode.
( the key between "t" and "u" prints "z" )
"z"/"y" is not the only problematic key, all the rest behave like US an not as
After the layout is selected, the keyboard on the textual consoles ( VT1,
VT2 ... ) is set correctly.
Also the keyboard on the installed system is set correctly , both on console
I also tested the following layouts :
"German", "Belgian" , "Czechoslovakian"
None of them worked. It also appeared that "Czechoslovakian" did not work on
but I don't know the czechoslovakian layout, so I can't be sure.
I also observed the following on VT3: when a new keyboard layout is selected,
the used command is printed :
setxkbmap -layout <name> -model pc102
All layouts I tried used this cmd line, except US, which used "-model pc105".
This may be a clue.
