Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install From CD or over network, swedish keymap fails. 2. 3. Actual Results: defaults to us keymap. Expected Results: should be able to use a swedish keymap. Additional info:

Nalin, any idea what became of the swedish console keymaps?
Comment 2 David Kvarnberg 2002-12-29 11:46:58 UTC
It seems like it got renamed to sv-latin1.map.gz ("sv" instead of "se").
Comment 3 Christian Rose 2003-01-06 18:02:03 UTC
The renaming is just plain broken (since when are keyboard layouts named after language and not country code?).

Comment 6 Henrik Nordstrom 2003-01-22 10:50:59 UTC
also redhat-config-keyboard assumes the Swedish keymap is named se-latin1...
Comment 7 Henrik Nordstrom 2003-01-22 11:19:13 UTC
Well.. to me renaming to language code makes some sense as there is multiple languages in the same country and languages spoken in multiple countries.. in Sweden we have the official Swedish language with it's keymap, but we also have a couple of other minority languages with their own keymaps possibly shared with other countries.. However, personally I totally ignore the keymap naming on country vs language, all I require as a tester is that the same name is used consistently in the system (which it is not in Phoebe..)
Comment 8 Christian Rose 2003-01-22 17:02:23 UTC
Keyboard layouts are usually based on national standards. There is no such thing as a "language standard". The national keyboard layout standards are however usually based on the needs for the major languages in that country. In countries with more than one language the keyboard layout is often the same everywhere anyway, since they allow for input of the characters of more than one language. In Spain there isn't a "Spanish" and "Catalan" and "Basque" layout, it's just the "Spain" layout, which allows for input of all these languages. In Belgium, there isn't a distinction between a "French" and "Flamish" layout, it's just the common Belgium layout, which is neither identical to the France nor the Netherlands layout. And so on. Because of this, trying to name keyboard layouts after language name is incredibly broken, since 1) it would give the false impression that keyboard layouts are per-language which isn't true (English speakers in the US and the UK usually don't use the same layouts), and 2) it would give the false impression that you should select the correct layout based on your native language, which isn't true either (think of a French-speaking Belgian user; he or she should probably select the Belgium layout and not a "French" one, since the Belgium keyboard is probably what he or she has).
Comment 9 Pawel Salek 2003-01-22 21:56:15 UTC
Is is just me, or the installer sets the /etc/sysconfig/keyboard:KEYTABLE to se-fi-lat6 which has definetely wrong mappings? /sbin/setsysfont in the initscript later produces plus before aring ignored plus before Aring ignored plus before odiaeresis ignored plus before Odiaeresis ignored plus before adiaeresis ignored plus before Adiaeresis ignored
Comment 10 Daniel Resare 2003-01-25 20:03:59 UTC
Note also the sister bug in rhpl (where the mapping table from Swedish to the correct X and kbd keyboard layout is) #80508
Comment 11 Christian Rose 2003-01-26 00:09:24 UTC
Raising the severity. With the current broken mapping, which is neither a "se" one nor an "us" one, it's impossible to enter a colon, so I had to send a kill signal to vim to be able to even exit from vim... Terrific.

Assigning to new owner.
Comment 13 Eido Inoue 2003-02-20 21:20:54 UTC
the mapping names have changed after the addition of euro keyboards and latin9. The warnings above have been fixed for the latest rawhide. the incompatibility of keymap names between versions and X is a known problem (workaround is to manually reset the map for now) that will be fixed in the next release.
