Description Marcin Garski 2007-04-26 07:47:21 EDT
Description of problem: I try to execute authconfig but it fails with traceback. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): python-2.5-12.fc7 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8 authconfig Actual results: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/authconfig", line 778, in <module> module.run() File "/usr/sbin/authconfig", line 356, in run self.parseOptions() File "/usr/sbin/authconfig", line 237, in parseOptions parser.parse_args(["-h"]) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1378, in parse_args stop = self._process_args(largs, rargs, values) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1422, in _process_args self._process_short_opts(rargs, values) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1529, in _process_short_opts option.process(opt, value, values, self) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 782, in process self.action, self.dest, opt, value, values, parser) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 804, in take_action parser.print_help() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1648, in print_help file.write(self.format_help().encode(encoding, "replace")) UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc5 in position 8: ordinal not in range(128) Additional info: LANG=C authconfig does work. Similar bug (maybe the same I don't remember) occur during Fedora 7 install, when anaconda crashed in pl_PL.UTF-8 locale but when I selected en_US.UTF-8 installation went fine.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-26 10:45:27 EDT
Fixed in rhpl
Comment 2 Marcin Garski 2007-05-09 10:48:27 EDT
With rhpl-0.205-1 authconfig works fine, but there is problem with smolt (LANG=C smoltSendProfile resolves it) Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/smoltSendProfile", line 102, in <module> print profile.getProfile() File "/usr/share/smolt/client/smolt.py", line 379, in getProfile printBuffer.append('\t%s: %s' % (label, data)) UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc5 in position 14: ordinal not in range(128)
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-09 14:21:26 EDT
That's actually a bug in smolt; it needs to use unicode strings appropriately. So you'll need to file something separate for it.
Comment 4 Marcin Garski 2007-05-09 15:06:55 EDT
Thank you for info. Somebody filed it before me :) (bug 239229).
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-24 16:20:26 EDT
The fix here is breaking things more than it's actually helping... I'm goign to have to revert it and then we'll come back for F8. Realistically, a number of things throughout the stack need to be more pythonic with their utf8 handling -- starting with rhpl and newt and then going onwards from there. Luckily, the only things that will be broken with the current code: 1) optparser help (this case) 2) Other things that end up doing explicit encoding of the output on stdout, which isn't that common
Comment 6 Marcin Garski 2007-05-24 16:53:15 EDT
If you revert this AFAIR anaconda will crash during install (so I'm hoping you won't revert it before F7 release).
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-24 17:09:21 EDT
No, with this, anaconda crashes. There was previously a different bug (same symptom) in anaconda, but that was resolved a little differently.
Comment 8 Marcin Garski 2007-05-24 17:30:30 EDT
Good to hear that there was a different bug. Fedora 8 Blocker is fine for me :) Do you plan to resolve it and push updates for F7, or only fix it in F8?
Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-24 17:34:40 EDT
Depends on how the fix ends up looking -- if it's something that can be safely pushed back to F7, we definitely will. But I'm not 100% sure how the fix is going to look at this point, which makes it hard to say.

Comment 12 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-04 11:26:47 EDT
This needs to be fixed by authconfig switching to using python's gettext module rather than rhpl.translate.
Comment 13 Tomas Mraz 2007-10-17 08:59:28 EDT
I've tried replacing rhpl.translate with gettext from python and it doesn't seem to help. Are some other changes necessary?
Comment 14 Tomas Mraz 2008-01-09 17:51:48 EST
Fixed using a modified patch written originally by Andy Shevchenko.
