The bug description isn't very verbose but I think Fabio is having the same issue that I have discovered. That is, none of my Sun boxen have keyboards (or monitors, for that matter) and installation is performed with a serial console initially. I believe dapper had an option for "no keyboard" but with edgy I have to lie and pick a keyboard that isn't really there. "No keyboard" should be an option, and probably the default if the current console is detected as being a serial port during installation.

Yes, this has never been implemented in console-setup, but should be. I suspect a separate keyboard "model" is probably the easiest approach.

This bug was fixed in the package console-setup - 1.21ubuntu5

console-setup (1.21ubuntu5) hardy; urgency=low

  * Silence error messages for keycodes 214, 215, 216, and 217, which are
    various special keys in the default X.org PC keyboard map that we don't
    need to handle.
  * Map dead_stroke to U+002D HYPHEN-MINUS.
  * Add a "Do not configure keyboard; keep kernel keymap" model option,
    preseedable by console-setup/modelcode=SKIP (LP: #59889).
  * Drop the layout/variant priority to high on fresh installs
    (LP: #205959).
  * Support rules with multiple consequents (thanks, Adam Simpkins;
    LP: #139710).
  * Allow specifying alternate rules using XKBRULES (thanks, Adam Simpkins;
    LP: #139712).
