Description of problem:
I've downloaded phoebe-3 and when I choose the keyboard layout
belgian(be-latin1), I have 2 wrong key mappings.

I don't know if this is a bug for redhat-config-keyboard, because, when I edit
/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/azerty/be-latin1.map.gz, it says:

keycode  86 = less             greater          backslash

1)This is the good keyboard mapping, but when I type "alt-gr + <" (it should
give a backslash) it gives a bar.
2)The key next to 'zero' on the numeric keypad should be a period, and is mapped
as a comma.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose keyboard layout belgian(latin-1)


Actual Results:  1)Type "ALT-GR + <" and it gives a bar

2)Press the key next to zero on the num.pad, it gives a comma

Expected Results:  1) bar should be backslash

2)comma should be period

Transferring to kbd.

Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2004-02-27 01:46:22 UTC
Simulated with my current keyboard-- key near the bottom left should
be "<>\" key.

AltGr with that key produces the correct character with kbd 1.12-1
