Description Thomas Canniot 2008-04-06 08:33:31 UTC
I tried the last Live-DVD (2008-04-04) for x86_64.

Liveinst didn't start with french locales. I had to execute the following
command to make it work :

[fedora@localhost ~]$ LANG=C liveinst --lang=fr_FR
FATAL: Module md not found.
  0 logical volume(s) in volume group "Fedora" now active
Probing for video card:   nVidia Corporation GeForce 8600M GT
15:06:02 Starting graphical installation...

Without the definition of the locale (LANG=...), liveinst starts then crashes
before showing the first step of the installer.
Examples :
---

$ LANG=fr_FR.utf8 liveinst 
FATAL: Module md not found.
  0 logical volume(s) in volume group "Fedora" now active
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 869, in <module>
    probeHW(opts, x_already_set, xserver)
  File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 456, in probeHW
    xserver.probeHW(forceDriver=opts.xdriver)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/rhpxl/xserver.py", line 91, in probeHW
    cardstr = _("Probing for video card:   %s") % (cardstr,)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 1: ordinal
not in range(128)

$ liveinst --lang=fr_FR

Thanks to Eddahbi Karim for submitting the problem.

In fact it fails with every non English languages. I could not start liveinst
with Deutsch language for example.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-08 03:20:44 UTC
Fixed in git.  (Note: bugs in liveinst should be filed against anaconda)

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 08:58:00 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
