Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 511193
[indic] installing without gnome (and kde), firstrun tools broken
Last modified: 2013-07-02 20:52:37 EDT
Description of problem:
just installed system by selecting Punjabi (Indic language (pa_IN)), without Gnome/KDE. while system rebooted (after installation), firstboot run
in pa_IN locale, which is not working on text mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install with indic langauge (hi_IN or *_IN) without gnome or kde destkop
2. reboot system
3. firstboot will ask for configuration (in text mode)
it is running in Punjabi
it should be in English if run in text mode
firstboot just runs setup when in the text mode interface.
thanks for report, I can reproduce this. In konsole/gnome-terminal it works, but in terminal it's broken.
Problem is with terminal and utf-8 encoding. Can you use any other encoding for pa_IN different than utf-8?
> it should be in English if run in text mode
it's not that simple, there is a lot of languages using mostly ascii characters and only a few special ones. Changing to english for them would be regression.

I have only utf-8 encoding for Indic (hindi, punjabi, bengali, gujarati, kannada, malyalam, tamil, telugu)
[locale -a|grep _IN]

sorry, but I mean only for Indic languages (which I mention above) all *_IN
anaconda is doing same (in text mode, using English for Indic languages)
Hope this will help
could you please test this packages if it works for you?
what I've changed:
if locale is *_IN and if terminal is /dev/tty* use en_US as locale
I've changed this only for terminal /dev/tty* because for virtual terminal /dev/pts/* (konsole, gnome-terminal,...) it seems working
working on it, update result tomorrow.
sorry for late..
Sorry but I lost rpms from build server. Can you please provide somewhere?
Ooops, koji removed them and I've lost them too. I'll prepare new one
packages are here:
it is *fixed* for all Indian (*_IN) language with above pacakge.
I am searching for more languages, which can't be supported in text more,
but yet not sure [like CJK, Thai etc]. Open new bug for those if required.
Thanks for fix
