Description Daniel Resare 2002-08-21 14:05:52 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

How Reproducible:

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)

Additional Information:

Why can't iso-images on harddisk result in a graphical install?
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-26 16:15:58 EDT

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.
