something in initscripts and/or console-tools seems to be broken. Just switch to console and try to use cyrillic.
hopefully will investigate...
btw, by selecting CapsLock as a switch we deprive ourselves of console cyrillic switch. ;o]
What does \'broken cyrillic\' mean? No glyphs?
Where do you select the CapsLock switch? We have /usr/lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/ruwin_cplk.kmap.gz -- does work?
For me, it works.
works after explicit load. But just try to install fresh ALM2, afair there were problems with cyrillic console out-of-box since Spring2001 till ALM2 independent of selected trigger key.
seems I\'ve been \"solving\" that by explicit copying of keymap/charmap/font somewhere under /etc/sysconfig (after investigating /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and/or /sbin/setsysfont), don\'t remember for sure.
There are 2 issues in your report -- to be clear:
1. broken cyrillic in console (no glyphs as far as I understand)
2. the Caps swicth doen\'t work
1. looks like #0001048, I\'m thinking about it.
2. Why doesn\'t it work? The keymap file is there, it works. Is it a problem of the installer or drakconf who don\'t know that it is there? Or again, a problem of initscripts which do not load it (whereby manual loading works)? Then it should be valid for any keymap, not specific to the Caps switch.

Could you please test the attached /sbin/setsysfont. Does it fix the problems?
Should be fixed in 5.49-ipl50mdk
