pirut shows a wrong selection of installed languages
Last modified: 2008-04-08 15:52:27 EDT
Description of problem:
Pirut shows a random selection of languages installed instead of the languages
actually installed in the tab "Language support"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This problem also exists in Fedora 7.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed Fedora 8 test 3. During install selected "Installation language:
In pirut on the tab "language support" an apparently random selection of the
languages are marked as installed.
After install finished, I expect "Danish" and "English" languages to be
available, which is confirmed by for example openoffice-langpack-da and -en
being installed and no other.

Screen dump of pirut with languages tab selected
What is even worse is that up to current "rawhide", it's impossible [at least
for me] to use "pirut" to install support for languages I'm interested in.
After opening "pirut", unselecting all junk in the "Languages" section, and
selecting the ones I need, the "Apply" button remains outgreyed.
Managing installed languages or adding further ones still broken
Please don't make changes to tracker bugs without QA team involvement. Moving
this to F9Target.
pirut isn't going to get any changes in this area due to the rise of PackageKit
Does this mean that F8 remains without a working package admin tool for
the remaining 12 months of its lifetime? After all that's the distro
for which the bug had been filed in the first place.
