Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72176
non-ascii chars gets displayed with two (bogus) chars in textmode install
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
When I install from iso images on hard disk and choose swedish as language all
non-ascii characters gets messed up in the following text mode install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@ulysses noa]# rpm -q anaconda
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start a textmode install and select swedish and for example å becomes
two bogus chars 'C%' (bugzilla is bogus, but trust me it looks bad)
Why can't iso-images on harddisk result in a graphical install?
And hard drive installs can't be graphical because you'd have to have a large
ramdisk to hold the second stage. Can't leave files open on the hard drive
while repartitioning if you want the kernel to be able to reread the partition
Fix confirmed with re0905.0.
