Does it work in english locale? Could you provide the debugging info as
requested above? Thanks!
Comment 2 Vitaliy S 2006-11-10 04:08:35 EST
Yes, it works in English locale.

I could not provide the debugging info because existing file LocateSettings.php
does not exist (the installation process creates it in case of success).

German locale doesn't work neither
Comment 4 Vitaliy S 2006-11-17 09:16:29 EST
I found the solution.
mediawiki package does not contain serialized and languages folders.

I copied these folders from mediawiki 1.8.2 tarball and after managed to
complete installation.
