Build 54 keyboard problem
By user12625760 on Dec 08, 2006
Build 54 has proved to be more difficult to get up than most releases. I've not yet worked out why the lumake on the server fails, I suspect something to do with the zone that is configured. However the laptop upgrade went smoothly until it came booting the new OS. I was hit by to problems:
The permissions on /tmp and /var/run were incorrect. Others have reported this when live upgrading to build 53 but I never saw it until today. This stopped gdm login starting until it was fixed.
The keyboard mappings were hosed on the UK keyboard that my laptop has installed. Typing 'c' got me 'z', 'g' got me 'f' etc. Thanks to Alan for diagnosing this and pointing me at a solution (copy /usr/X11/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/sun/gb from the build 53 image).
The coolest thing in build 54 is that at last staroffice 8 is bundled I just need to clean up some of the mess left from having it installed seperately.
