User:Skierpage/Redhat-XO OLPC keyboard
 Why the hell doesn't Rawhide-XO know I have an olpc keyboard?
Using http://dev.laptop.org/~cjb/rawhide-xo/ 20090313.iso image and Sugar on a Stick Soas2-200903121944.iso...
I boot and X11 thinks my keyboard is pc-105+inet.
Bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=484217 seems to have morphed into arguments about what kind of keymap to have. But the system doesn't know I have an OLPC keyboard, I have to
setxkbmap -model olpc
to get Alt Gr to work.
"HAL" should magically set this up. lshal | less and look at the input section.
- I have /usr/share/X11/xkb/*/olpc files and /usr/share/hal has olpc keyboard table information.
- lshal | grep system.hardware shows it knows I have an OLPC C2
- /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/30-keymap-olpc.fdi has the info about keyboard detection.
- looking at the matches in it, they should all be matched.
Yet none of the quirks appear to match.
/etc/X11/xorg.conf Section "InputDevice" sets keyboard to
Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "us" Option "XkbVariant" "intl"
Something sets /etc/sysconfig/keyboard to
acentos seems to be a Red Hat invention for an accented keyboard.
I think it started as
HAL fdi has an "info.callouts.add" command to run 'fedora-setup-keyboard', which seems to push some keyboard info into HAL source.
That in turn reads a keyboard database from /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packates/rhpl/keyboard_models.py , with no OLPC in it, and finds the matching /ec/sysconfig/keyboard line.
 Trying to fix
I tried moving /etc/sysconfig/keyboard out of the way and then per http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/quirk-keymap-try.html :
# /bin/service haldaemon restart
that resulted in me getting
input.xkb.model = 'evdev' instead of 'pc105+inet'
and setxkbmap -v reported
evdev+aliases(qwerty) geometry: pc(pc104)
so Hal still didn't pick up the quirks.
 To try
How do I just force HAL to use my C2 OLPC definitions?

Only the latter has a few Afghanistan OLPC keyboard layouts, none of them has "U.S. English (olpc)". I don't know if the "first boot" GDM keyboard selector should be a different bug.
