Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240087
Anaconda presents wrong keyboard list for Bulgarian installations and crashes with ru_win
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
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):
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
The system crashes saying it can not find the keyboard layout if ru_win is selected.
Anaconda should present bg_phonetic and bg_bds layouts (and en_us) and continue
May be related to Bug # 238345.
How does it crash?
It complained that some file is missing and displayed a debug dialog. I'll try
this again and give more details.
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...
Please try the next rawhide tree with rhpl-0.206-1 and anaconda-220.127.116.11 in it
and let me know if this is working better for you.
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)?
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).
No change with F7 final (qemu -m 480 -cdrom boot.iso -boot d). With 'qemu -m 480
-hda diskboot.img -boot c' I get:
and the cursor stays forever after the dots (more dots than I typed here).
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.
Of course we keep this sort of information in more than one place! Please try a
future tree with anaconda-18.104.22.168 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.
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: 'Ð‘ÑŠÐ»Ð³Ð°Ñ€ÑÐºÐ¸' (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.
