Bug#303474: Sarge RC3 Installl report - Graphic card resolution selection and german keymap selection failed
reassign 303474 localization-config
> As with previous sarge rc2 installations, installation itself went fine.
> However I have still problems with the graphics resolutions (as reported in
> #275697: xserver-xfree86: [debconf] resolutions higher than 800x600 not
> used <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=275697>) and
> problems with the keymap.
As the problem was already reported and given that graphics card
configuration under X are not in the scope of D-I, we will ignore this.
> While I had installed rc2 with German keymap and English language (see
> error report #274725: german keyboard problem
> <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=274725>), I installed rc3

I guess you mean for X? Is the *console* keymap correct?
If this is for X, can you confirm the choices you made for language,
country and keymap during the install?
Was it German, then Germany, then German keyboard?
What is the default locale (should be de_DE)? You can look in
/etc/environment for that?
What are the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 settings for the keyboard? Please
paste the whole InputDevice section.

I guess that Konstantinos Margaritis, localization-config package
maintainer, will look at this.
