Description Niels S. Richthof 2003-04-17 17:05:17 UTC
Description of problem:
chosen settings in the installation process:
language: german
keyboard: de-latin1-nodeadkeys

at first (and following) boot(s), keytable complains:
---[start]---
plus before udiaresis ignored
plus before Udiaresis ignored
plus before odiaresis ignored
plus before Odiaresis ignored
plus before adiaresis ignored
plus before Adiaresis ignored
---[end]---

I found in /etc/sysconfig/i18n:
---[start]---
LANG="de_DE.UTF8"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"
---[end]---


After changing these values to:
---[start]---
LANG="de_DE@euro"
SYSFONT="lat9-16"
---[end]---

it works correctly

anaconda is setting the right thing, but the keyboard description in kbd has
problems

Comment 2 Sven Hummel 2003-04-30 15:30:13 UTC
I have got the same problem and solved it with lat9w-16 for the moment. 
 
But the problem is not solved yet full as the UTF-8 is missing ! 
Also expect problems with UTF-8 in mixed networks. 
Try ssh from a RH9-server with UTF-8 version activated to 
a RH7.3-server running without UTF-8. 
 
How this can be handeled ?

no warnings with fc2-test1 and kbd-1.12-1
