Description Oron Peled 2008-10-07 03:36:20 EDT
This bug report focus on one problem discovered during
testing of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=465406

Description of problem:
 * The "Language" selection from GDM login screen set the
   encoding of the language to .utf8
 * Anaconda lang-table entries are normally .UTF-8 (note the case).
 * As a result, running the liveinst from the desktop fails to
   match these strings and as a result the default keyboard
   and default timezone are set to "US" and "New York" respectively
   without taking localization defaults into account.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Tested on F10-Beta-i686-Live.

How reproducible:
 * Select from GDM a language with non-default settings
   (I tested with de_DE and he_IL).
 * Login.
 * Run live install from the desktop.
 * We get localized install, but without the localized defaults
   that are defined in anaconda's lang-table

Who should be fixed GDM or Anaconda? (i.e: what is the official
encoding .UTF-8 which we always used, or .utf8 which suddenly
appeared in GNOME)
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-10-07 09:57:22 EDT
We should already be performing the conversion from .utf8 to .UTF-8 - see bug 443408.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-10-07 11:51:43 EDT
We're doing the conversion, but weren't resetting the other lang attribute that got added to handle less than correct things being passed in kickstart.  Fixed up in git
