Hi all,

 I have installed Centos Atomic Host (latest, release: CentOS-Atomic-Host-7.1609-Installer.iso) in my KVM host laptop (RHEL 7.3 fully patched). But after install it a lot of problems appears.

 a/ Keyboard: I have selected spanish keyboard during install, but after first boot, keyboard is keymapped to us. Why? I have tried to change it via command line, without luck. Executing "localectl list-keymaps", returns this error: "Couldn't find any console maps". Maybe is it related to these bugs: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1186757 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1235726??. RedHat knowledge article https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1562963

 b/ Network: same problem as with keyboard. I configured network adapter but after first boot, a docker0 bridge is created with a totally different IP address: Why? Another bug?

 c/ Disk partitions: I have created the following partitions at first stage: /boot, swap, /, /tmp, /var ... and installation fails ... Selecting only /boot, swap and /, installation works ok, like it does with automatic partitionning ... But, why?

 Seeing these problems, I am asking if CentOS Atomic Host is a ready to use product. To discard these problems, I have downloaded RedHat Atomic Host 7.3.1 (latest production release) and same problems appears ...

 Are CentOS Atomic Host and RedHat Atomic Host ready to use products in production environments?? I think the answer is not ... In fact, they seems a really bad options to deploy docker containers ...

 Any input? Any idea to how to resolve these (startup) problems?

Many thanks and Happy New Year.
