Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 845744
Dracut doesn't load keytable/keymap when booting
Last modified: 2012-08-14 17:57:46 EDT
Description of problem:
When dracut.noarch 0:018-96.git20120724.fc17 is installed, loading of the proper keyboard table via dracut doesn't work when booting. The message is:
loadkeys: /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/no.map:2: cannot open include file qwerty-layout
This is fatal when the root partition is encrypted, because the password entered is translated via a wrong keytable (US?).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install the mentioned version and boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install dracut.noarch 0:018-96.git20120724.fc17
2. Build a new kernel or install latest F17 one
3. Problem occurs
Proper keytable doesn't get loaded.
Proper keytable gets loaded.
Doing a "yum downgrade" to dracut.noarch 0:018-35.git20120510.fc17 and recreating the initramfs via "dracut -f" solves the problem.
dracut-018-98.git20120813.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Updating to the new version doesn't help. The same as described before is happening. Downgrading to dracut.noarch 0:018-35.git20120510.fc17 and recreating the initramfs ("dracut -f") resolves the problem.
