Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 147052
Installer uses wrong language in console when called with vnc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
Description of problem:
I installed FC 3 using vnc method, typing:
Then I chose Catalan (ca) as the language to use during the
installation. Then everything is in Catalan, but when it starts the
VNC server, all console text is in Spanish (es) (note: locale is ca_ES).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a new install using VNC, with "linux vnc"
2. Choose "Catalan" as the language to use during installation
3. Follow all screens, entering all data needed, until anaconda starts
Actual Results: The messages are in Spanish
Expected Results: The messages should be in Catalan
I noticed this by installing via VNC, but I don't really know if this
is what triggers the change in language.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

On VMWare, chose Catalan in the first screen of installation (text-mode), then
used vnc viewer to connect.
Becuase I do not understand neither Catalan nor Espanyol, I cannot tell is that
bug still existing in latest rawhide. Could reporter or anyone who knows
Catalan and Espanyol advice in here?

I can confirm that the text in all screenshots above is in Catalan.
Could you do us a big favor that go through the whole Catalan installation by
vnc? It would be fabulous to ensure an excellent quality of the latest anaconda
for people who uses Catalan. :)
Sure, I will definetely do once FC6t3 is out (in 2 days?), or would
you like to have it earlier? If so, where can I get rawhide CD images?

I am trying to get a available rawhide location for you, if I could not get back
to you by the FC6t3 release date, please try that on the your download source of
latest version. Appreciates for you kindly help. :)
I am not guarantee whether it is the latest or not.
If the first 5 screen could be confirmed is in Catalan, I assume the remaining
screens are also in Catalan as there is very rare case that anaconda would
switch to another language suddenly along the progress.
Of course if Josep has time, it would be extremely welcome to test the whole
Is there any people who understand Catalan could test?
I'll be testing it as soon as FC6t3 gets out, but as you put un comment #13, I
believe the problem should be solved now.
When I reported the issue, the console message indicating that it started the
VNC server was in Spanish, but that doesn't seem to be the case now.
I'll report back as soon as possible.
I finally installed from FC6t3 and the whole thing was in Catalan (what was
translated, that is ,-).
Caius, I totally missed comment #12 where you gave me the URL to fetch the
installation CD for testing, sorry about that.
This problem has disappeared, so it all looks good to me for closing this bug now.
Thanks for your time and efford. Keep up the good work!

I can confirm this is Catalan, and as I mentioned in comment #16, I think this
issue can be closed.
