Description Enrico Scholz 2003-04-14 20:57:57 UTC
escription of problem:

I am using a non-standard keymap named "my". When running ksconfig I get

| $ /usr/sbin/redhat-config-kickstart 
| Traceback (most recent call last):
|   File "/usr/share/redhat-config-kickstart/redhat-config-kickstart.py", line 84, in ?
|     kickstartGui.kickstartGui(file)
|   File "/usr/share/redhat-config-kickstart/kickstartGui.py", line 115, in __init__
|     self.category_view, self.options_notebook, self.kickstartData)
|   File "/usr/share/redhat-config-kickstart/basic.py", line 129, in __init__
|     self.keyboard_combo.entry.set_text(self.keyboard_dict[currentKeymap][0])
| KeyError: my

2. insert 'KEYTABLE=foobar' into /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
3. run ksconfig

What is the version of redhat-config-kickstart that you are using?

Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2003-04-14 21:14:08 UTC
I am citing from my report: ;)

| Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
| redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.6-4

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-05-21 20:51:52 UTC
Should be fixed in redhat-config-kickstart-2.3.7-1.  It now falls back to 'us'
keymap if the probed one can't be found.
