Thanks, Jens! I am somewhat confused to which list this topic belongs.
In the meantime, I could get one step further. With the following append
line (with linebreaks to increase readability)
append debian-installer/locale=de_DE \
[ ... rest deleted since it has no relevance ... ]
I managed to omit the "The origin of the keyboard:" question. But the
"Detect keyboard layout?" question is still asked. Changing the detect
don't help, either.
AFAICS, the documentation (appendix B of etch install guide) is either
outdated or simple wrong. The documented method simply has no effect :-(
BTW: The documentation says the format of the preseed file is
<owner> <question name> <question type> <value>
How can I find out from the question (e.g. "Detect keyboard layout?")
which <owner>, <question name> and <question type> belong to the
question and which <value>s are available for it?
Is it possible to find this out from withhin the install environment
BTW1: I noticed that neither hostname(1) nor dnsdomainname(1) are
available in the install environment. This is too bad, since
they would be a great help to preseed mirror/proxy settings
or which packages to install.
