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):
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
Red Hat Linux release 8.0.94 (Phoebe)
Transferring to kbd.
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
