Hi Anas, people,

I've spent the last couple of weeks setting up autoyast2 for a diverse
network with 80 machines. Anas' online buglist (and the patches it
pointed to) answered most of the questions I wanted to ask, but not this

Is there a way (beyond applying sed to /etc/X11/XF86Config, which is
what I do today) for me to set the X11 keyboard map? I keep getting
machines configured with a US keymap, which with Norwegian keyboards
is anything but nifty. Setting the _language_ to Norwegian isn't an
option, my keyboards may be Norwegian but 20% of my users aren't...

<General> -> <keyboard> only affects the console keymap.

I had the same Problem with German keyboards. I too prefered not to
use German as language.


didn't worked. I found that an additional sysconfig entry worked
as easy workaround.

<sysconfig config:type="list">

You will find an Norwegian KEYTABLE in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/*/*
