Description Umesh R S 2006-07-10 03:05:51 EDT
Description of problem: 
Currently, there is no locale support in Anaconda for kn_IN. 
Expected results: 
I would like it to be enabled. 
Additional info: 
Time zone - Asia, Culcutta 
Default keyboard - kn_IN. If this affects entering details during 
installation, then it better be en_US. 
Font to be used - Not sure. Tunga.ttf (a microsoft developed font) is 
available. But not sure whether that can be used. Else, sampige.ttf and 
kedage.ttf are other available fonts. But am not sure of what is best in this 
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-07-10 20:40:18 EDT
To add locales to anaconda, we require that there be a freely available and
distributable font included with Fedora first.  So I think that working through
the font issue needs to be done first.
Comment 2 Umesh R S 2006-07-14 02:35:36 EDT
I guess we can pretty safely include kedage.ttf font, which is freely available
and distributable at http://brahmi.sourceforge.net/ . This has a very minor bug
and looks pretty much usable. So, kindly see if this can be included in the
installation and also in the font.config file.

hi Umesh,
don't worry about fonts, following package is available in Fedora Core Rawhide:

Only thing, which need to worry about Translation, only 125 Strings are translated,
so, please update your translation
