Bug Description

Hi,
When I install Ubuntu, and reach the keyboard layout selection, what gets
selected is some absurd layout, whether I choose polish, US, whatever. Actually,
it's none of the known layouts IMO, as s u is in place of m etc
When I get back to keyboard selection from the set up your login /password'
stage of the installer, the problem disappears: I choose the kbd I want and
everything works fine.
Thank for your work,
IH

Is this Breezy (5.10) or Dapper?

What kind of keyboard do you have?

Can you please get me the file /var/log/syslog ? You can copy it to another
system if you choose "back", then "install additional system components" and use
scp to transfer it to some other machine.

Please attach /var/log/syslog from the installer to this bug. You can
use the "Save debug logs" option from the installer's main menu to
extract it.

(So yes, you can help, please just do the above).

The system's been installed quite a while ago, will the file be still

No, it won't be. You might find the old file in
/var/log/debian-installer, though.
