Description of problem:
Preupdate does not work with Polish keyboard selected unless it is changed to US before running preupgrade
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tested it only for F10 -> F11 but you may try F11 -> rawhide
Always. I crashed four different F10 -> F11 upgrades on four different boxes (all with Polish keyboard)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change KEYTABLE="us" (or whatever you have) to KEYTABLE="pl" in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
2. Run preupgrade
3. Reboot and crash soon after Anaconda asks you for keyboard (it will) whatever you choose
Crash with a stack very similar to that from this posting
except that the final error is KeyError: 'pl' (not 'gb' as in the posting).
I could not save the traceback as it happens before the partitions are mounted.
No question about the keyboard, no crash.
The workaround is to change to KEYTABLE="us" in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard *before* running preupgrade (doing it before preupgrade and reboot does not work)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.
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 12'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 12 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 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 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.
