Description of problem:
when you first start ksconfig, its default language selection is
english, and if you do a "Save File" to examine the generated ks.cfg
file, everything looks fine.
but if you switch to a different language, language support in the
generated file will include, not just the newly-selected language,
but "en_US" (english u.s.) as well. why?
on top of that, if you start by selecting a new language right
away, check "Save File", then switch back to english, that second
language is still listed in langsupport. it's as if, the first
time you do a "Save File", whatever language is currently selected,
you're stuck with no matter what you do from then on. ksconfig
clearly has some kind of internal memory and insists on holding
on to that first selection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2."Save File", look at generated ks.cfg
3.select another language, "Save File", look at generated ks.cfg again
Actual Results: the original language is still (incorrectly) listed in langsupport
Expected Results: once you deselect a language, it should be dropped from
Ok, I think I've got it fixed now. Kickstart's behavior with langsupport is a
little weird anyway, so it's kind of tricky to get right. ksconfig-2.2-2 should
appear in Rawhide soon. Thanks for your report.
