Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: console-data
I am running Lucid-amd64 on my machine.
Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
I installed it via:
debootstrap --arch amd64 lucid /tftpboot/ubuntu-10.4 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
apt-get install language-pack-en
apt-get install nfs-common linux-image-2.6.32-13-generic console-data
### I set the keymap to qwertz -> Germany -> latin1 - no dead keys. ###
After editing /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf for boot via NFS and updating the initrd, I bootet the machine via PXE and had an english keymap after fist login.
I then did "dpkg-reconfigure console-data". The following dialog showed the settings I did during install. After dpkg-reconfigure was done, I had the correct console keyboard layout again. But after a reboot, I was back to the English layout.
Even with a working German layout I cannot type any Umlauts (äöü) or ß.
dpkg -l|egrep "kbd|console-data|language-pack" shows the following:
ii console-data 2:1.10-1 keymaps, fonts, charset maps, fallback table
ii kbd 1.15-1ubuntu1 Linux console font and keytable utilities
ii language-pack-en 1:10.04+20100206.1 translation updates for language English
ii language-pack-en-base 1:10.04+20100206.1 translations for language English
Thanks for your help.
** Affects: console-data (Ubuntu)
