Build 703, q2d14 (must be a fresh install AFTER setting the mfg-data for ethiopian keyboard)
This is holding up production of Ethiopian laptops at Quanta.
I set the mfg-data to mimic an Ethiopian keyboard using info from here: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Mfg-data
- KL = us,et
- KV = olpc2,basic
- LO = am_ET.UTF-8
- KA ref = us
After the cleaninstall of a 703, when you get the name screen, I type characters and they come out in Ahmaric. I press the change character set button (lower right below Enter key); and the characters are still Ahmaric (they should be English).
In Pippy, Terminal activity, and Abiword - I can't get English.
In linux virtual terminal, all characters are English (this is ok).
When I went into the linux virtual terminal after the boot up, there are a bunch of errors including the final one:
More than one layout variant on command line Using "et", ignoring "olpc2,basic".
