system-config-keyboard and anaconda uses the keyboard models - I assume that
rhgb should too

import rhpl.keyboard_models
k = rhpl.keyboard_models.KeyboardModels()

name, xlayout, kbmodel, variant, options = k.modelDict["slovene"]

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-04-25 20:30:27 UTC
How is the keymap wrong, and what should the correct one be?

Comment 3 David Balažic 2005-04-26 07:23:46 UTC
It is qwerty (probaly US, didn't check all 100 keys...).
It should be 'slovene' ( 'sl' or 'si' in X terminology, I am not at the PC right
now, so I can't check, but it is easy, one works and the other gives an error).

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2005-04-26 14:45:32 UTC
It appears the keyboard is correct in anaconda, the console, and X (at least,
it's certainly not qwerty - the Y and Z keys are transposed, and the bracket
keys produce characters with various accents).  firstboot appears to not be
obeying the keyboard setting.  Reassigning.
