Hey everybody,

does anybody know which component is responsible for the system keyboard layout settings?
Found a bug when certain layouts selected during install are ignored by the system 
(GNOME etc. get's them fine, I am mean e.g. in tty).

Proper option is passed to kernel (KEYTABLE=cz-lat2) on bootup and /etc/sysconfig/keyboard is also configured properly.
However in tty2 etc., english layout is used. This relates to bug 68290[1] as user is unable to type his disk encryption
password if it had non-english characters. This behavior occurred when setting cz-querty layout and the default Slovak, 
which are the ones I tried so far.
