See RHBZ#571900 - Keyboard mapping not correct (USA instead of Belgium) when first login after install Fedora 13 Alpha


  • RHBZ#571900 pointed out the need for a better understanding of how the language and keymap installer selections impact the installed system.
  • Currently we don't have i18n installation cases, so local language install is not tested as a demand. Untranslated pages are still existing after RC test. Such cases needed be added in test as well as release criteria.

enhancement recommendation

  • Recommend reviewing methods for incorporating l18n verification into existing test plans, or coordinating with the i18N team.
  • Tests were drafted to capture a representative sample of the language differences. Those tests are available at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:I18n_Installation. The tests may need to be reviewed and adjusted as needed, and possibly added to the installation test matrix.

Sorry, replied to the duplicated thread, which has been closed.

I had a talk with Jens earlier through IRC, and he reviewed current tests. He thought the tests and their grouping idea are generally good so far, here I included his main comments.

<juhp> anyway overall I think it looks good so far
<juhp> you might need some adjustments after doing some real testing...
<juhp> also f13 has nice feature of enabling kbd switcher automatically in some cases

Next step I will do some real tests to adjust the steps. Regarding to the auto enabling switcher function, I don't have any physical keyboard other than qwerty. Can anyone who has other kinds of physical keyboard please test whether anaconda behaves different from using qwerty kbd during installation? I don't think so. But if yes, I will write a test about it.

  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Further discussion can be found in test list at http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test/2010-July/thread.html titled 'L10N QA Template for F14'. We agree to hold a test day to achieve best preparation and coverage for installer translation and keyboard.

Ticket#112 is created for tracking this,so this thread is closed.
