Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 390831
Missing older computers testing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:23 EST
Two friends of mine tried installing Fedora 8 and for both of them it early
crashed. New installation (no upgrade), empty disk.
System (1): notebook P-III, 256MB RAM, 20GB PATA disk
Error: UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can`t decode byte 0xc5 in position6:
ordinal not in range (128)
(but I have no backtrace for it)
It offers to report the problem to a server but he does not know
the server (?) address.
Mandrake works there out of the box.
System (2): notebook Intel 1.8GHz, 1GB RAM
Do you test the installations on old enough PCs?
Sure expecting some NOTABUG here, it is just a flame.
What language was the first installation done in? What's the problem you are
seeing with the second one?
Both were (most probably) language=Czech, I suggested later English but that was
too late for (1), (2) still may try it.
