Bug#657218: kbd-chooser: keyboard not preseedable during automatic installation

Package: kbd-chooser
Version: 1.62
Severity: minor
Tags: d-i


When running the d-i in auto-install mode, the keyboard inside the
installer environment is not configured, even if the settings in the
preseed file are made. The reason is the kbd-chooser.isinstallable file,
which prevents the execution of kbd-chooser.postinst in the case of an
automatic installation. Just to be clear: this does not affect the
keyboard layout of the installed system, just the layout used in the
installer environment.

The kbd-chooser.isinstallable is supposed to delay configuration, but it
prevents it completely for me.

My installer configuration:
Used this installer:
The kernel parameters are:
auto=true priority=critical vga=normal initrd=initrd.gz -- quiet
A preseed file was added to the initrd on the iso file.

Short term fix: in the preseed file, the user can add this line:
d-i preseed/early_command string /var/lib/dpkg/info/kbd-chooser.postinst
Long term fix: either remove the *.isinstallable script from the list of
maintainer-scripts, or fix the "delaying" this is supposed to do.
