Description David Balažic 2003-01-17 13:35:36 UTC
Description of problem:

Non-US keyboard layouts don't work during GUI install.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The one from Phoebe CD1 , CD3 contains the following RPM :

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start a GUI install
2. select "Slovenian" keyboard layout
3. proceed until a text box can be used to test the keyboard
Actual results:

Keyboard uses US layout, not Slovenian.
( the key between "t" and "u" prints "y" )

Expected results:

Keyboard operates in Slovenian mode.
( the key between "t" and "u" prints "z" )

Additional info:

"z"/"y" is not the only problematic key, all the rest behave like US an not as 
they should.
After the layout is selected, the keyboard on the textual consoles ( VT1, 
VT2 ... ) is set correctly.
Also the keyboard on the installed system is set correctly , both on console 
and X.

I also tested the following layouts :
"German", "Belgian" , "Czechoslovakian"
None of them worked. It also appeared that "Czechoslovakian" did not work on 
VT2 either,
but I don't know the czechoslovakian layout, so I can't be sure.

I also observed the following on VT3: when a new keyboard layout is selected, 
the used command is printed :
setxkbmap -layout <name> -model pc102
All layouts I tried used this cmd line, except US, which used "-model pc105". 
This may be a clue.
