I wanted to install Fedora 9 Preview in VirtualBox and right after I selected my
keyboard (de-latin1-nodeadkeys / the default for German language) a traceback

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create Linux 2.6 virtual machine in VirtualBox 1.5.6
2. try to install from F9 Preview in textmode
3. select german / de-latin1-nodeadkeys
Actual results:

The next step in the installer should be shown.

Additional info:
I downloaded the iso via bittorrent and it matches the sha1sum.

This also happens when I want to install it with virt-manager and qemu (no kvm,
but kqemu).
Comment 3 Till Maas 2008-04-18 08:02:19 EDT
It works in VirtualBox when I select "English" as a language and
de-latin1-nodeadkeys or us as keyboard.

When you're at the debugger prompt there, can you please type:

print drive

and paste the results here?  Thanks.

The output is "sda".
The output of print "x"+drive+"x" is "xsdax", so there should be no
special/invisible characters.
