Fwd: Re: Bug#303474: Sarge RC3 Installl report - Graphic card resolution selection and german keymap selection failed

Forwarding this to debian-boot.
I think I know why this happens. The user chose 'English' which means 
that l-c does not get instaleld at all so it cannot do the required 
configurations. So when the user selects a country and a keyboard 
mapping other than the expected (english), X does not get configured 
as it would were he to choose another language.

So, what do we do? Install l-c even when English is selected?

Hello Konstantinos,

which are the correct, or at least they are what I was sent to include
as being the correct.
I have to withdraw my previous error report 303474.

As debian did not configure my graphics card correctly, I did copy some
time ago /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 from knoppix onto my disk.
Unfortionately, this changed also the keyboard settings...

I have reinstalled Sarge RC3 an get the identical results a you:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc105"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "de"
        Option          "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"

Sorry for the inconvienice.

Finally I have also reinstalled Sarge RC3 with the following
configuration (see error #274725:):
- Languge = 'English'
- Land / country = 'Germany'
- Keyboard = 'German'

Here I have selected the Gernan keybaord, here I still get the US keybaord:

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"
	Driver		"keyboard"
	Option		"CoreKeyboard"
	Option		"XkbRules"	"xfree86"
	Option		"XkbModel"	"pc104"
	Option		"XkbLayout"	"us"


When I started gnmoe keyboard manager, US keyboard was selected. When
removing that I got a gnome error message stating that complex configurations are sometimes not supported. The error message included a request to attach the following information when sending an error report to gnome:

gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
	 layouts = [de  basic]
	 model = pc104
	 overrideSettings = false
	 options = []
	 update_handlers = []
Xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc104", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc104", "de", "basic", ""

When starting KDE afterwards I was able to change the keypad to gernam.
As far, as I saw, this did not cause any change the XF86config-4 file,
however also changed the keyboard settings later Gnome sessions too.
