Description pommnitz 1999-10-05 16:39:44 UTC
I have a german keyboard attached to my machine. Despite the
fact that I had selected the right keyboard during
installation (my password was correct) I ended up with an
empty keyboard configuration file (size was 0). I had to use
the text mode kbdconfig program to create a working one.

I just saw the python code about the keyboard and i didn't see any
reference to a string like KEYBORD= (like in def Mouse () )
Are you sure you didn't forget to put it in your code ??? ( question
to the Redhat Team )
