Thread: Keyboard layout for disk encryption password changes to Dvorak after zypper dup

    Default Keyboard layout for disk encryption password changes to Dvorak after zypper dup

    I've installed Tumbleweed with an encrypted LVM. On boot I have to enter the encryption password twice: once in GRUB, once after loading the kernel (this wasn't always the case, and only started happening after a reinstall - I used to only have to enter the encryption password after loading the kernel, I don't know why or how this was changed).

    I boot the system multiple times over the course of a week without updating to any newer snapshots, and everything seems to work fine: the password in GRUB is entered in QWERTY, and works fine. After loading the kernel, again I enter the password in QWERTY, and it works fine. I then do a zypper dup in tty1 to whatever the latest snapshot at that point is, reboot, enter the password in GRUB in QWERTY, which works fine, but then when I get to the password after loading the kernel, I have to enter it in Dvorak. I have no idea why this is happening, but I can consistently reproduce the issue: if I would wipe my disk and do a clean install of the latest snapshot, the password would work fine in QWERTY both before and after loading the kernel. However, as soon as a newer snapshot appears and I update to it, I have to enter the password in Dvorak.

    Any ideas, or help making this into a proper bug report?

    Your /boor is on encrypted partition now (likely same as root). If you do not like it, use separate unencrypted partition for /boot.

    when I get to the password after loading the kernel, I have to enter it in Dvorak
    What are your locale settings in YaST?

    Locale is set to nl_NL, root is the default 'Ctype only', and the keyboard layout is set to Norwegian ('no'). Thanks for the hint on the encrypted /boot, I'll keep that in mind.
