Re: Languages, translations, locales, timezones, keyboard layouts and the lang-table



Well,

we still have to support serial consoles, but if I am not mistaken, we need only vt100 and ansi for that as the terminals do not support anything fancy. So we should be ok with latin/cyrilic defaults and english locale.

One question remains to be asked: How will we treat /set/sysconfig/keyboard in the installed system? If somebody installs minimal install and ends up in console login prompt, he should be able to type his password.. (which was created in gui with the country specific keyboard). Can s-c-kbd take care of this?
