RHEL 9.2 kickstart problem

Hello i have a problem by installing RHEL 9.2. I am getting the following error (installing on other location with other smart proxy in that location):

Expected outcome:

Foreman and Proxy versions:

  • katello-4.8.4-1.el8.noarch

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:

Distribution and version:

Other relevant data:

You can take a look at dasbus.error.DBusError@: Specified keymap cannot be compiled - Red Hat Customer Portal (requires a RH account) and Performing an advanced RHEL 9 installation Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9 | Red Hat Customer Portal
Looks like they changed the required syntax for keyboard layouts in RHEL 9.2 kickstart. Where up until now, you could simply put keyboard <layout>, you now need to specify which type of inputmap you want to use, so you’ll need to update your kickstart file and should be good.


I misread, this change has apparently taken place in RHEL 9.0. Though, we are still using the old syntax on our end and have not had any problems with this, so maybe it’s dependent on the keymap that you try to use?
In any case, upgrading to the new syntax should fix the issue.
