Description Doncho Gunchev 2007-05-15 00:38:18 UTC
Description of problem:
The latest rawhide shows wrong keyboard layout list for Bulgarian installations
and crashes if ru_win is selected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Tried two times - both.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try installing fedora 7 (rawhide) from mirrors.kernel.org with virt-manager
and qemu emulation.
2. Select Bulgarian
3. Select ru_win keyboard layout
Actual results:
The system crashes saying it can not find the keyboard layout if ru_win is selected.

Expected results:
Anaconda should present bg_phonetic and bg_bds layouts (and en_us) and continue
without errors.

Additional info:
May be related to Bug # 238345.

How does it crash?

Comment 2 Doncho Gunchev 2007-05-15 16:27:31 UTC
It complained that some file is missing and displayed a debug dialog. I'll try 
this again and give more details.

Comment 3 Doncho Gunchev 2007-05-15 17:22:20 UTC
I can not attach the screenshot of this, so I'll explain. The crash happens long
after the keyboard is selected  - when stage2.img has been downloaded and
executed. This is run with virt-manager and qemu.
At the screen (after I selected 'debug') there is:

hope this helps...

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-05-16 16:59:04 UTC
Please try the next rawhide tree with rhpl-0.206-1 and anaconda- in it
and let me know if this is working better for you.

Comment 5 Doncho Gunchev 2007-05-19 11:05:23 UTC
stage2.img from 2007-May-18 19:41:09 - hashlib.py line 34 can't import
_sha256... waiting for the next image. Any hint from where to get them sooner
(boot.iso + stage2.img)?

Comment 6 Doncho Gunchev 2007-05-28 18:25:40 UTC
With boot.iso from 27-May-2007 05:35 the problem is still the same (there's no
Bulgarian kbd and ru_win crashes anaconda). rhpl-0.208-1 + 
system-config-keyboard-1.2.11-1.fc7 work correct (Bulgarian + Bulgarian
Phonetic) in my F7 rawhide (Bug # 238345 is fixed).

Comment 7 Doncho Gunchev 2007-06-03 11:16:51 UTC
No change with F7 final (qemu -m 480 -cdrom boot.iso -boot d). With 'qemu -m 480
-hda diskboot.img -boot c' I get:
Loading vmlinuz.......
Loading initrd.img......_
and the cursor stays forever after the dots (more dots than I typed here).

Comment 8 Doncho Gunchev 2007-07-04 07:20:51 UTC
No change, tried the latest FC8 images and even the line numbers are the same. 
No bg/bg_pho options and still crashing with Bulgarian + ru_win.

Comment 9 Chris Lumens 2007-07-20 18:40:43 UTC
Of course we keep this sort of information in more than one place!  Please try a
future tree with anaconda- in it, which I have not built yet.  This
should have updated keymaps for the loader that reflect the earlier changes I
made in rhpl.

Comment 10 Doncho Gunchev 2007-09-29 10:36:45 UTC
I tested rawhide today.

In the text anaconda interface I can see both layouts and they seem to work.

In the graphical anaconda interface for the keyboard I have the following 
choices: 'БългарÑки' (Bulgarian, translated) and 'Bulgarian (Phonetic)', which 
is on the top. I searched all .pot files I have and can't find this string for 
translation but it looks working.

Can't crash the installer any more.
