Description Danishka Navin 2009-04-06 15:37:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Sinhala translation of the 'Fedora 10 installation' is there but we can not use as LKLUG font is not working during the installation (from DVD) but the font is there, we can use the Sinhala GUI once we installed the system

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

Fedora 10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the Fedora 10 installation with a DVD
2. Keyboard US
3. Select Sinhala as the installation language
Actual results:

We can see set of boxes instead of Sinhala characters

Expected results:

Sinhala characters

Additional info:

LKLUG font is available in the DVD and we can install Sinhala support during package sellection or 
after 1st boot as well.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2009-04-06 15:56:36 EDT
Please try again with rawhide after F11 beta and let me know if this is working better for you.  We just recently made some changes to the font support.

hi danishka,

this issue got resolved after beta release, so correct output will get from rawhide boot.iso

but http://file.pnq.redhat.com/fedora/linux//development/i386/os/images/ boot.iso
shows last modified date 31st march 2009, i guess it not updated yet
