Ubuntu keyboard map not saved by mindi

Description

Ubuntu (11.04 and 10.10) keyboard map is not saved by mindi.

Then, at "mondorescue backup" boot (expert mode), the keyboard is mapped to "us" (QWERTY) and - if keyboard is a non-us one - isn't mapped to the right keyboard (example: to the french "AZERTY" mapping).

In mondoarchive.log we get :

Line 816: Analyzing your keyboard's configuration.
Line 817: Searching for rc.config ...Unknown config detected. Default keyboard map will be used.
Line 2890: Analyzing your keyboard's configuration.
Line 2891: Unknown config detected. Default keyboard map will be used.

Instead, in mondoarchive.log, we should get :

Analyzing your keyboard's configuration.
Adding the following keyboard mapping tables ...

mindi modified, to detect Ubuntu cached.kmap.gz file

comment:1 Changed 8 years ago by vicgat

It is because, in mindi, for Ubuntu, is tested : /etc/console-setup/boottime.kmap.gz

On Ubuntu 11.04 and 10.10, that file doesn't exist, it is named : /etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz

So I added a new section in /usr/sbin/mindi script, line 377, under the one that tested Ubuntu boottime.kmap.gz file :

    elif [ -e "/etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz" ] ; then
        echo "Ubuntu-style config detected." >> $LOGFILE
        echo -en "Adding the following keyboard mapping tables: "
        mkdir -p $bigdir/tmp
        echo "/etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz" > $bigdir/tmp/KEYMAP-LIVES-HERE
        KBDEPTH=0
        mkdir -p $bigdir/etc/console-setup
        cp /etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz $bigdir/etc/console-setup 2>> $LOGFILE
        echo -e "$DONE"
        return 0

After that, /etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz is detected and saved in mondorescue backup.

And now the keyboard is mapped correctly at mondo backup boot.

With that mindi new section, in mondoarchive.log, we get :

Line 816: Adding the following keyboard mapping tables: 
Line 817:				Done.      

Line 2898: Analyzing your keyboard's configuration.
Line 2899: Ubuntu-style config detected.

Not perfect...we should get also the mapping name (us-latin1, etc.) but it works at boot ;-)

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

Fixed in rev [2828]. Thanks Victor for your report and fix (I adapted it a bit to avoid too much code duplication)
