#434 Keyboard selection from anaconda installer is not preserved
Opened 2 years ago by jlebon. Modified 2 years ago

During installation, an alternate key board is chosen (IE dvorak). This setting is not used post-install.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install atomic host with an alternate keyboard
2. reboot
3. keyboard layout is not used post installation.

Migrated from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1430180 for upstream discussions.

I think (but haven't verified) that this is because the keyboard layout is stored in the initramfs for classic systems. rpm-ostree initramfs --enable is a workaround, but a better fix is to change things so that all client-side state is stored separately (layered initramfs, kernel arguments, etc.)
