Description Simon Lewis 2013-06-15 05:06:08 EDT
When applying German in system-config-language dialogue following error message is obtaimed:

"No Group named german-support exists: Do you still want to install language without proper support?"

Steps to reproduce this:

Fedora 19 beta installed from KDE-live iso with German language selected in Anaconda...

- German keyboard / local settings / some but not all translations 
   were installed and / or configured. 

- KDE 4 German internationalisation was not installed.

Subsequently installed system-config-language.noarch 

Run system-config-language.noarch from terminal select and apply German language.

Terminal output:

# system-config-language
Geladene Plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-language/language_gui.py", line 179, in okClicked
  File "/usr/share/system-config-language/language_gui.py", line 269, in apply
    if not install.is_group_installed(grpid, self.mainWindow):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-language/gui_install.py", line 118, in is_group_installed
    raise yum.Errors.GroupsError, "No Group named %s exists" % grpid
yum.Errors.GroupsError: No Group named german-support exists
Comment 1 Parag Nemade 2013-06-15 10:47:19 EDT
system-config-language is broken currently. If you want to install German support alternative way is to use following command
sudo yum langinstall de
Comment 2 Parag Nemade 2013-12-16 12:11:17 EST
Currently yum groups behaviour is broken in Fedora 20 due to removed language support groups and yum started using groups as objects now. The better solution can be provided is to stop reporting this as a error and have some more meaningful informative message like "Due to comps cleanup %s group got removed and no longer exists. Therefore only setting the default system language".
