Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19145
Anaconda dies on a mkkickstart generated ks file with lang set to en_GB
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:21 EDT
Having built a PC to the desired configuration (language english, keyboard
UK) we run mkkickstart to generate a ks file which starts with
booting a second identical PC anaconda gets the IP address and gets past
mounting the install directory via NFS but then dies.
The blue install screen scrolls staircased error messages off the top of
the screen, the parts being visible are
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1088, in setClass
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 254, in setByAbbrev
then you get
install exited abnormally. and the usual shutting down signals
will install ok.
I'm assuming that then setting LANG="en_GB" in /etc/sysconfig/i18n will
then switch it back, certainly I'm getting GBP signs in terminal windows
etc when I do this.
I am assigning this to the mkkickstart component, and changing it to an
enhancement request ... thanks for your report!
unfortunately mkkickstart doesn't know that the language code en_GB is not
supported by kickstart. From the kickstart portion of the Red Hat Linux
Valid languages codes are:
cs_CZ, en_US, fr_FR, de_DE, hu_HU, is_IS, id_ID, it_IT,
ja_JP.ujis, no_NO, pl_PL, ro_RO, sk_SK, sl_SI, es_MX,
but mkkickstart didn't read the manual ... ;)
