Description Christian Rose 2003-04-04 16:12:01 UTC
Description of problem:

The Swedish keyboard layout was renamed from "se-latin1" to "sv-latin1" upstream
(for unknown reason).
On upgrades, the Red Hat Linux installation program does not properly update the
keyboard layout name specified in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard from "se-latin1" to
"sv-latin1". The result is that keyboard map loading on the upgraded system
fails during boot and the system is left with an American keyboard layout.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install RHL 8.0 system with Swedish keyboard layout.
2. Upgrade said system to RHL 9 by using the upgrade functionality in the installer.
3. Watch keyboard map loading fail during the next boot.

Actual results:

Upgraded system uses American keyboard layout on the console.

Expected results:

Upgraded system uses Swedish keyboard layout on the console.

Workaround for the problem:

Hand-edit the /etc/sysconfig/keyboard file to change the reference to
"se-latin1" into "sv-latin1". Reboot.

anaconda doesn't go around changing random config files -- this needs to be done
by the package with the change instead

se-latin1 now exists and is a copy of the sv-latin1 so both should work
