Thanks. I applied this patch, and the error is now gone. However, it
seems the keyboard is not working correctly in a new virtual machine. I
start up the Mandriva boot.iso file to do a network installation. In the first
steps of the net install cd, the installer expects US keyboard layout
(it only asks what type of keyboard you have later once the installation
GUI has been downloaded and started).

If I try to enter numerical characters 1234567890 using the keys above
the alphanumeric part of the keyboard (and typing as if I had a US
keyboard instead of a Belgian one), I get k23b5s7890. For some reason,
the 1, 4 and 6 are not working correctly.
