Bug#386532: d-i: keyboard layout and language are not being installed in low memory mode

Package: debian-installer


I downloaded the netinst CD image of 05-Sep-2006 02:09 from
so-cd/debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso> and installed it in a VMware
environment. The virtual machine was equipped with a 64 MB RAM and a 2
GB hard drive. At the boot prompt I entered the following:

install brltty=ht,ttyS0,de

It was pointed out to me that the installer is running in low memory
mode and that all messages will appear in English. When asked for a
country and the keyboard layout, I chose Germany both times. In a consol
the keyboard layout worked right. The standard system was installed and
loaded by a FTP mirror.

After the installation I noticed that the keyboard layout obviously did
not work right as the umlauts (ä, ö, ü, ß) did not work. Instead of the
umlaut, a blip is audible via the PC speaker. The language is also not
installed as chosen because the messages from aptitude are given out in

When I repeated the installation with more working storage, everything
worked right.

Best Regards, Simon
