View Full Version : Can't login after HDD install

11-30-2008, 10:46 AM
I took the debian option to install.
I did put my live session to the Belgian keyboard and then did run the install.

When I did get the questions about userid and password I entered this with that Belgian keyboard.

Install went ok, but after a reboot of the HDD I can't login as the keyboard seems to be in US again.

Is there a way to have the keyboard in Belgian before the login screen?

Forgot to say I tried lang=be, but that didn't work.

I could login as root and changed the keyboard to Belgium.
But this apparently is not propagated to the regular user login.


Tried to keyb=be code in grub, but to no avail.

Don't use lang=be because then you get the Belarussion language.
Use us or nl or fr

During the login procedure did you try to give the user log in , and password as if you had a qwerty instead of an azerty keyboard. I mean typing for example Q for an A and so on.
