I prepared a miniiso  for testing: could you dear d-i fellows please
test and report whether your local keymap correctly works?
Tested this mini.iso:
german de layout is ok. All umlauts are working, ß is working
and @ (AltGr + q) works too.
Cool! could you also please confirm that using "swiss german" keyboard
layout AltGr + 2 = @ , so that i can proceed closing #395284 ? I belive
this bug was misreported.
But I am unable to switch to another layout afterwards.
No matter what I choose, it stays de (there are endless
messages on vt1 "Reloaded keymap ..." though).
That's expected: at each frontend_go() call the keymap is reloaded (not
optimal but effective and simple)
(Not sure if that is really a problem in the mini.iso or
if this because of some functionality missing to save space.)
taht's strange, i can successfully switch between german and other
languages easily as many times as i want.
Could you please try with priority = low typing some letters in the
mainmenu, so that the search box pops up, after choosing a keymap ?
