system-config-language crashes when setting locale without language group
Last modified: 2015-04-12 19:12:10 EDT
Description of problem:
s-c-l is good tool to change your language on your PC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version : 1.3.5
Release : 13.fc18
Version : 3.4.3
Release : 44.fc18
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install s-c-l on your Fedora 18 Alpha with all updates
2. Run s-c-l
I can confirm it.
Fedora 18 Alpha KDE spin up to date.
1.- Run system-config-language
2.- Select spanish from spain
3.- put OK
4.- The GUI say: "No Group named spanish-support exists: Do you still want to install language without proper support?
5.- Yes is pressed
6.- The App GUI crash and not respond and the only way for recall is ctrl+c from the terminal that started s-c-l
Other languages like finnish works, downloading the necessary packages and installing it. Spanish group, no.
After select, english, again, spanish from spain, later finnish, and again Spanish from spain and wait 5 minutes, works. If spanish from spain is selected in first instance, not.
So, is a bug
I can also reproduce same.
$yum langinstall es_ES, works fine.
i think s-c-l should call groupinstall and langinstall both commands irrespective of language group present or not.
thanks for the bug, can you please try with lastest version of yum and s-c-l.
I am not able to reproduce the issue.
Checked with Pravin Satpute as well, he is also not able to reproduce it
