Description Roderick Johnstone 2007-05-23 05:35:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Running a kickstart install gives traceback from anaconda.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a kickstart install
Actual results:
Traceback from Anaconda, finishing with (copied by hand):

if os.environ["LANG"].find("UTF") != -1 or os.environ["LANG"].find("utf") != -1
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/UserDict.py, line 22, in __getitem__
    raise KeyError(key)
KeyError: 'LANG'

Expected results:
Rawhide is installed.

Additional info:
Kickstart file contains:
lang en_GB.UTF-8
This worked fine with the F7 test4 install.

I have also tried with:
lang en_GB
and it gives the same error.
Comment 1 Roderick Johnstone 2007-05-24 11:12:24 EDT
Still seems to fail in the same way with todays rawhide that contains

Works fine if I remove the "lang" statement from the kickstart file, except that
it prompts me for the language.

This is related to the locale stuff I'm currently looking at...
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-24 16:34:29 EDT
Will be fixed with rhpl-208
Comment 4 Jarod Wilson 2007-05-24 18:29:46 EDT
Will try to reproduce this in the morning...
Comment 5 Will Woods 2007-05-27 15:28:24 EDT
This should be fixed in current rawhide and F7rc2. All of my kickstart-based
testing has completed successfully. Please retest and confirm. If the problem
persists, feel free to reopen this bug.
