Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432158
Wrong local settings when French is selected
Last modified: 2008-02-19 15:19:14 EST
Description of problem:
When I told anaconda that my language is French, it does not select the French
(latin9) keyboard (but an American one) and tells me that I leave somewhere in
America, where it should be Paris, in France.
The UTC time clock is also checked where it shouldn't.
However the bug does not seem to happen all the time. It does on my two machines
(a laptop and a desktop pc), but other people told me everything was alright for
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
f9 alpha anaconda
always, but not on every machines
When French is selected, Anaconda should select French(latin-9) keyboard, select
Paris as the default location and uncheck the UTC time checkbox.
In text mode install, anaconda choose the right keyboard after French language
is selected. But bug #432162 prevents me to look if Paris is well selected either.
I've tried a netinstall from rescuecd, all there is ok when I've selected french
as language :
- keyboard default selection is french latin9
- timezone is setted to Europe/Paris
From the KDE livecd (i386), I've the same issues as Thomas : both keyboard and
timezone are set for US and not french.
What type of install are you doing?
I'm am running a DVD i386 fresh install in graphic mode.
This will be fixed in the next builds of anaconda and system-config-keyboard.
