I used the configurator to change the language to US english, exited
the session and restarted first boot from an xterm.  It worked.  So it
is definitely a language problam.

Looks like a bad translation?
Comment 4 Dimitri Papadopoulos 2004-02-16 13:24:07 EST
Yes, a bad translation. The funny thing is that firstboot fails on a
different line here, 1670 instead of 2560, although we're probably
running the same version (I'm running firstboot-1.3.3-3):

(firstboot.py:1670): Gtk-WARNING **: Invalid input string

(firstboot.py:1670): Gtk-WARNING **: Invalid input string
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/rhpl/translate.py", line 202,

    return string.encode("UTF-8")

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2004-02-16 16:37:04 EST
fr.po was not UTF-8 encoded for some reason.  I converted it and
committed it to cvs.  Should be fixed in firstboot-1.3.4-1.  Thanks
for your report.
