Selecting Japanese as the default language gives unknown symbols in text
windows (such as Xconfigurator or anaconda --reconfig).
These errors were found on QA0322
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run anaconda --reconfig
2. Select Japanese as the default language
3. Restart the machine
4. Run anaconda --reconfig
5. Get crap characters
you have to run the "kon" program to see Japanese on your console.
Tried running kon at command prompt, but said it was an unknown command. Did a
full custom install, plus all languages.
verify kon2 package is installed.
Putting in NEEDINFO state.
Installed kon2 packages, and kon works correctly now. Does Japanese need to be
installed as the default language for the kon2 packages to be installed? They
weren't installed with a Custom Everything install with English.
if you selected the checkbox by Japanese or selected Everything on the
"languages to support" screen, you should get it.
