Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191096
Unable to install Fedora in Turkish language, anaconda crashes
Last modified: 2009-09-21 17:14:35 EDT
Description of problem: I tried to install Fedora Core 5 from the DVD that I
received from Linux-Magazine. But the installer aborted with an error after
setting up the installation partition. It also created an error dump file and it
is attached to bug report.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora Core 5
Steps to Reproduce:

Anaconda error dump file.
The dump file shows more or less supported hardware and that it passed the
What kind of existing filesystems and/or LVM groups do you have? Did you select
autopartitioning or did you define your own partitions?
I have several partitions on my hard drive. I chose one of the previous
partitions . There was a debian linux installation on that partition. I assigned
that partition as the root partition. Evertyhting was fine until the installer
started to check the installation packages. Then I got the error and the
installation aborted with the dump file.
I found out that this problem occurs when I choose Turkish Language support. If
I do not choose Turkish support installation continues smoothly. I think there
is a problem with the Turkish support only. Maybe the problem is for the DVD I have.
This bug (or one similar to it) is still present in rawhide. Attaching dump
report to this message. Pulling in resident i18n anaconda expert (katzj).

*** Bug 244016 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This looks like a duplicate of bug #207134
hmm, not actually a duplicate but same code as in bug #207134.
Calling tolower() at get_normal_name() function in Parser/tokenizer.c causes this.
Indeed, this seems extremely important.
Sertaç Ö. Yıldız witnesses that F8test1 still cannot be installed in Turkish:
This problem continues for test3, too -- I'm adding this as a blocker for F8.
(Reassigning to Anaconda)
Has anyone tried the latest rawhide image?
If not, can you try and report back if it is fixed in that. We only got a couple
of days if we need to fix this on time.
I haven't tried it -- but now downloading the iso.
I just tried with rawhide of a day or so ago and things are fine. The initial
traceback reported here was fixed as of the middle of September.

> The initial traceback reported here was fixed as of the middle of September.
Do you mean python-2.5.1-11? Didn't test3 already contain that version?
I installed a rawhide tree from the end of last week in Turkish successfully.
Do you still see a problem?
Ok, I can confirm that the problem is solved with the latest rawhide.
You may close the ticket.
Oops, it crashed again after formatting the disk and starting installation.
Can you attach the exception you received?
[Above I tested i386 install: x86_64 install over nfs (again from last week)
also looks ok for me FWIW.]

Fedora 8 Oct24 Rawhide iso - Turkish locale crash issue - traceback
Attached is the traceback that I got.
Sorry for the delay.
Okay, the original bug reported here is fixed and network installs work as
things are right now. Devrim's traceback is a new bug and is directly bug
207134. So I'm going to close this one and stick 207134 on the blocker list also
Removing the offending coding declarations from sqlite packages didn't fix this
bug, just palliated the installation problem it caused.
Shouldn't we leave this bug open till bug #207134 gets fixed and port the fix here?
python-2.5-15.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update python'
python-2.5-15.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
As this bug report and bug #207134 are both closed, is there another open ticket
that I can track the status of python in Fedora with Turkish locale so that I
can change my locale back to Turkish when the issues are fixed?
