Upgrade problem when changing languages
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:46 EST
Description of problem:
Generally speaking, I run a mixed-language environment on my Linux
desktop machines. Typically, I will run in Japanese Language mode and
install in English. This works well for me, but I can only install
and not upgrade. If I attempt to upgrade from RH9 to FC1 or from FC1
to FC2, I get problems that usually results in my inability to key in
any Japanese text. The solution is always to run a fresh install as
it seems apparant that the install process doesn't know how to upgrade
around these conditions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH9 or FC1
2. Change default language to Japanese
3. Attempt to upgrade while using English as the language during install
No option, during upgrade to select or change supported languages
during upgrade installation.
Inoperable Japanese Text Input
Upgrading doesn't add new packages, it just upgrades your existing
packages. Eventually, you'll be able to add the packages like you
want, but it won't be related to an upgrade at all.
