Description of problem:
when i set up i18n to
system-config-network chrashes while adding a new networkadapter e.g. wireless
card or so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set i18n to the values above and reboot.
2. confirm that locale is LANG="de_DE.iso885915@euro" and so on.
3. try to add a new network device over button NEW and follow the wizzard to
4. system-config-network chrashes with the following message:
codec can't decode bytes in position 36-38: invalid data
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 323, in on_finish_page_prepare
s = s + "(" + hw.Description + ")"
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 36-38: invalid
Local variables in innermost frame:
druid_page: <gnome.ui.DruidPageEdge object at 0x9bd5d74 (GnomeDruidPageEdge at
self: <netconfpkg.gui.WirelessInterface.WirelessInterface instance at
HardwareList.Ethernet.eth0.Description=VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102

This happens also while adding an atheros card and other ones.
If i set i18n back to UTF-8 it works with all adapters.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
