Starting with this release, the sysidkdb tool configures your USB language and its corresponding keyboard layout.
With the new sysidkdb tool, the following procedure occurs:
If the keyboard is self-identifying, the keyboard language and layout automatically configures during installation.
If the keyboard is not self-identifying, the sysidkdb tool provides you with a list of supported keyboard layouts during installation, so that you can select a layout for keyboard configuration.
Previously, the USB keyboard assumed a self-identifying value of one during the installation. Therefore, all of the keyboards that were not self-identifying always configured for a U.S. English keyboard layout during installation on SPARC.
PS/2 keyboards are not self-identifying. You will have to select the keyboard layout during the installation.
JumpStart Specifications: If the keyboard is not self-identifying and you want to prevent being prompted during your JumpStart installation, select the keyboard language in your sysidkdb file. For JumpStart installation, the default is for a U.S. English keyboard layout. To select another language and its corresponding keyboard layout, set the keyboard keyword in your sysidkdb file .
