Description Gary Lerhaupt 2002-02-15 22:41:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
I setup a ks.cfg with lang support ja_JP.eucJP and a text install and upon 
trying it, I have some jumbled characters at the bottom of the screen and the 
rest of the install proceeds in English.  If I comment out "text" and do a GUI 
install, everything comes up as Japanese as expected.

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

How reproducible:
Always (also in 7.1)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up ks.cfg with langsupport for Japanese and a text install
2.Create a boot.img floppy and do "linux ks=floppy"

Actual Results:  English install with garbled text at the bottom of the screen

Expected Results:  Japanese

Additional info:

I'll attach my ks.cfg.

Matt, I think this is similar to another bug already assigned to you that my
quick search isn't finding

Bad characters no longer get shown as we make sure to stay in English instead of
displaying Japanese without starting Kon
