    that is ugly! (inside the red circle)..

    i've not heard of this problem before so i can only guess it is just
    for you....why might that be? maybe you are using a keyboard that the
    11.1 install script doesn't recognize? (is it a special keyboard? USB,
    wireless, whatever?)

    oh, and what happens if you click on that button named "Expert
    Settings"....i've never had occasion to use it, but maybe it has a
    section to pick YOUR keyboard (rather than the one the install script
    thinks you have!)

    AND!! there *are* differences between 10.3 and 11.x....enough
    differences that i (and many others) are still hanging on to 10.3 as
    our daily user....and HOPING that 11.2 turns out to be stable enough
    to use...

    AND! if you have been using KDE3 you are probably gonna be lost if you
    install KDE4..

    one thing i would do for SURE is keep available 10.3 until you know
    for certain that 11.1 serves you as it should....AND make a copy of
    your 10.2 /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    in fact, i recommend you do a complete system backup; put your /home
    and all created data on separate partitions; and then do a fresh
    install of 11.1's on a formatted system (/) partition...upgrading is
    usually a problem...

    finally, you might need to check with a local user group, see: on that keyboard/language

    but, hey! you ARE welcome here and i hope a Russian user drops in soon
    and fixes you right up!

    Had a similar problem once, only fixed after I changed the keyboard (old was ps2, new is usb). It seems it was a hardware problem.

    i had the same trouble! Try Yast2-System-Language.
    Select primary language "Russian" and mark "Adapt kb layout to Russian". Удачи,земляк!
