Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2001-09-08 03:29:41 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010803

Description of problem:
the 'System Response' and the 'e-commerce' flashcards displayed during
package installation contain US phone numbers.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installation
2. watch flash cards while installing

Actual Results:  A US phone number is displayed on at least two of the cards

Expected Results:  A URL in addition to or instead of the phone mumber.

Additional info: a phone number only makes sense if these flash cards are
only displayed in an US version. AFAIK the installation media are the same
for all geos

The installer ads are translated into the various supported languages and the
correct phone numbers for those locales are displayed.

Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2001-09-13 12:02:37 UTC
Errm, no.

I sit in the UK, choose Englich as install language, Englich{Great Britain) as
default language, set Europ/London as "timezone" and still get US numbers.

If I choose a different language, I get other ads, but based on the language I
choose for the installer, not on the locale I set.
