Description John Lynn Roseman 2000-02-17 14:30:52 UTC
Installation in Russian (and other foreign languages) fails
with the message:
  Bad magic number in /usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/anaconda.mo

The problem seems to be that the file anaconda.mo is gzipped.

Fix:
  for file in instimage/usr/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/anaconda.mo
  do
      mv $file $file.gz
      gunzip $file
  done

Issue is resolved in the latest beta installer.
