Chosen keyboard layout not set after install
Last modified: 2012-10-08 10:09:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Set Icelandic keyboard layout in Anaconda, install and then boot into multi-user.target.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
What ever was on the alpha ( Have not tested with beta tc so this might be fixed already )
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description
Icelandic keyboard layout not present after installed system
Being able to type Icelandic characters in terminal
Either kernel command line containing
"vconsole.keymap=is-latin1 vconsole.font=latarcyrheb-sun16" or the necessary changes made to /etc/vconsole.conf as in
Note that the /etc/sysconfig/i18n is now considered an legacy config file ( but still backwards compatible as in systemd will pick these changes up although I think the kernel parameters SYSFONT and FONT are being ignored/deprecated ) thus the installer,firstboot and probably bunch of other stuff to needs to be updated to use and make the necessary changes to /etc/vconsole.conf instead.
see  for details about the config file and the new kernel commandline parameters
Yes, this is fixed post-alpha.
