6.1.92: problem to install when Turkish is selected
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
During install of 6.1.92, I choose Turkish language, "all the packages"
and also "individual package selection".
And just before the installation begins, the install program
crashes. The last messages I can remember on the black screen is
"Missing charset in fontchar creation"
"You may safely reboot your system"
I can give more info about it or regenerate the messages
if somebody contacts me.
Also there are missing Turkish consolefonts. Can somebody contact
with me to get proper Turkish consolefonts please?
assigned to the correct component.
I am able to get through a Turkish installation wiht the latest installer code
without the installer crashing. However, I did see that the charset did not
appear to be loading in the loader (so the TUI was not using Turkish characters)
I was not able to reproduce the exact behavior as above, but performing an NFS
GUI full install (selecting "Turkish" language and "us" keyboard ) and entering
the "Select Individual packages" screens as described above did generate an
anaconda traceback during the post-install phase:
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/threading.py", line 376, in __bootstrap self.run
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress.py", line 16, in run rc =

(self.hdList['kernel']['version'] + "-" +
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 20, in __getitem__ return self.h[item]
KeyError: unknown header tag
This problem does NOT occur doing the same install using TUI mode...
this problem also occurs when language is "Turkish" and keyboard is "trq"
Fixed in pinstripe
