Description Álvaro Castillo 2012-09-25 20:51:28 UTC
Description of problem:

s-c-l is good tool to change your language on your PC

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version     : 1.3.5
Release     : 13.fc18
Version     : 3.4.3
Release     : 44.fc18

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install s-c-l on your Fedora 18 Alpha with all updates
2. Run s-c-l

Comment 1 xset1980 2012-09-26 02:41:36 UTC
I can confirm it.

Fedora 18 Alpha KDE spin up to date.

1.- Run system-config-language
2.- Select spanish from spain
3.- put OK
4.- The GUI say: "No Group named spanish-support exists: Do you still want to install language without proper support?
5.- Yes is pressed
6.- The App GUI crash and not respond and the only way for recall is ctrl+c from the terminal that started s-c-l

Reproducible: Always

Other languages like finnish works, downloading the necessary packages and installing it. Spanish group, no.

Comment 2 xset1980 2012-09-26 02:58:48 UTC
Additional Info:

After select, english, again, spanish from spain, later finnish, and again Spanish from spain and wait 5 minutes, works. If spanish from spain is selected in first instance, not.

Comment 3 Álvaro Castillo 2012-10-16 14:17:52 UTC
So, is a bug

Comment 4 Pravin Satpute 2012-10-16 14:42:37 UTC
I can also reproduce same.

$yum langinstall es_ES, works fine. 

i think s-c-l should call groupinstall and langinstall both commands irrespective of language group present or not.

Comment 5 anish 2012-11-02 12:48:33 UTC
thanks for the bug, can you please try with lastest version of yum and s-c-l.
I am not able to reproduce the issue.
Checked with Pravin Satpute as well, he is also not able to reproduce it
