Committed something that should hopefully help this in CVS, will need
a new tree to test
Comment 2 Lawrence Lim 2005-03-07 01:38:00 EST
I tried installing in LANG=ja with a kickstart file, the text mode
installation is good but the font package seems missing and hence the
text are all displayed as empty squares.

Could you please have a look again?

At least for anaconda gui and tui installs now the CJK font is used.
However currently the installer doesn't seem to be finding
any CJK fonts when choosing a CJK install - just get white boxes.
(Inspite of this the install works ok.)

More fixing in progress...  about to build a tree to test it with.
Comment 5 Lawrence Lim 2005-03-16 20:45:47 EST
Tried rawhide-20050315 with anaconda-, the ja text are now being
displayed instead of empty squares.
