Description Juan Diego 1999-12-11 17:34:17 UTC
I found some problems with installer, for example anaconda can't detect
properly the video card SiS 620, i've search it in kudzu pcitable, and i
didn't found it.. so i have added it.... the pci entry i used is...

0x1039  0x6306  "Card:SiS 620"  "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]|620"

It worked fine, with the card, now we can perform a graphic installation
with this video card, and the entries to Xconfigurator work fine...

the file modified is...


just add the line, and go...

About the es_MX, i found this problem, when I went to do something like...

[root@geo12 /root]# rm lolis
rm: ?borrar `lolis'? (s/n) s
[root@geo12 /root]# ls -l lolis
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root            5 Dec 11 07:37 lolis
[root@geo12 /root]#

so, the file was not erased, then i changed the definition in
/etc/sysconfig/i18n to...


Ok, this when the system is already installed, but we can fix this in the
installer program...

the archive to modify is this...


in the class Language...
class Language (SimpleConfigFile):
    def __init__ (self):
        self.info = {}
        self.langs = {
            "Czech"      : "cs_CZ" ,
            "English"    : "en_US" ,
            "German"     : "de_DE" ,
            "Hungarian"  : "hu_HU" ,
            "Icelandic"  : "is_IS" ,
            "Indonesian" : "id_ID" ,
            "Italian"    : "it_IT" ,
            "Norwegian"  : "no_NO" ,
            "Polish"     : "pl_PL" ,
            "Romanian"   : "ro_RO" ,
            "Slovak"     : "sk_SK" ,
            "Slovenian"  : "sl_SI" ,
            "Spanish"    : "es_ES" ,
            "Russian"    : "ru_RU.KOI8-R" ,
            "Ukrainian"  : "uk_UA" ,

The originale line said...
            "Spanish"    : "es_MX" ,

and i changed it to...

            "Spanish"    : "es_ES" ,

Now, the installation perform well in spanish (Oh, sorry my bad english,
spanish is my native language :) and all ths system is already correctly
located, (Kde, Gnome. mc, etc...).

I hope we can share this to all...
