First of all… First post, so hi all
Second, I have installed 11.2 with English as default language. During the installation, I tried to change the default keyboard mapping to Spanish, but right now, when the system boots it uses an English mapping. I’ve seen there is an option to change that on the grub menu and I would like it to default to Spanish. Is it possible? I haven’t found much info on the web, but my guess is that changing the DEFAULT_APPEND in /etc/sysconfig/bootloader with an unknown-keyboard-related option will solve it… Any idea?
Did you install the final release of 11.2 because there was a bug reported earlier in which the language chosen on install was not preserved and went back to English US?
In any case, I’m not sure what the point of changing the keyboard for GRUB is. Normally, I only use Return and the arrow keys at the GRUB menu.
Do you mean the login screen? In this case, you need to set the keyboard layout in YaST to match your keyboard layout.
Once you get to the desktop, you can use the desktop utilities to change the software keyboard layout.
Forget about the newbie question. I didn’t realize that choosing the keyboard in the grub was just… that. Change the keyboard mapping in the grub. I though it was related somehow to the keyboard mapping of the whole system after booting, which obviously isn’t. Sometimes… (sigh…)
Thanks for your help

Relax. Things like this bite most everybody somewhere along the way.
I have been using computers since 1971 and still bit by things like
