[ml_IN][Anaconda] Failed to load ml_IN Font at the time of Installation
Last modified: 2009-04-06 10:29:31 EDT
Description of problem:
while selecting Malayalam and Sinhala language for installation, unable to see messages, might be due to not loading of required fonts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.select lang Malayalam/Sinhala
Not showing Malayala and sinhala language messages
It should show Malayalam and Sinhala messages like other language
same problem in F11 Beta
smc-meera font name got changed recently from smc-fonts-meera to smc-meera-fonts,
might be problem happening because of that
i saw changelog in anacode, looks this is updated
while looking carefully into anaconda source code i found
as per new font naming guideline's most of the fonts name got changes,
still anaconda trying to install smc-fonts-meera though name of package is changed to smc-meera-fonts
unfortunately smc-meera-fonts doesn't have provide field like other lohit fonts that why problem is happening
anyway i am fixing this in smc-meera-fonts also
that is the problem for malayalam
about sinhala, i found there is not package name lklug-fonts in anaconda's package list
thats why problem with sinhala
attaching patch for resolving this
Created attachment 338001 [details]
patch for fixing package name change problem, also adding lklug package in package list
mistakenly changed state to modified
fixed smc-meera-fonts issue - bug 493814
The answer to bug #493814 is to check the Fedora 11 comps file has the correct "default" declarations in the @fonts group, and remind Anaconda people they're supposed to use this list for default installs.
Changes in default font packages happen every Fedora release, it's useless to try to hide them from anaconda.
(also, if you have a different behaviour for the smc renaming than for other fonts you'll just confuse anaconda people)
Oh good, it had been at most a couple weeks since the last inexplicable font package change. I was beginning to worry something had happened to you guys.
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda. Thanks for the patch.
Looks like you were quick this time fixing bug. Actually I was requesting to add few more Indic fonts. See bug 494261.
When will new build appear on koji? I see only
