[rsync'ed from 2005/04/04 12:30PM EST]

Should I expect both:

lang en_US.UTF-8
langsupport --default=en_CA.UTF-8 en_CA.UTF-8 fr_CA.UTF-8
keyboard us


lang fr_CA.UTF-8
langsupport --default=fr_CA.UTF-8 fr_CA.UTF-8 fr_CA.UTF-8
keyboard us

kickstart install to work when this is fixed? I'd like to test french install to
look at the strings.

Comment 1 Ricky Ng-Adam 2005-04-06 02:36:08 UTC
Different error now with en_US.UTF-8:

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/". line 220, in skipStep
  raise KeyError, ("unknown step %s" % stepToSkip)
KeyError: 'unknown step languagesupport'

...and fr_CA:

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 147, in getLangNameByNick
  return self.localeInfo[curNick][0]

Comment 2 Ricky Ng-Adam 2005-04-06 02:38:03 UTC
Comment #1 was with anaconda- BTW...

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-04-06 14:30:06 UTC
The unknown step error was fixed in  The KeyError on fr_CA is
because I'm not finished rewriting language support yet.  For now if you want to
just examine the strings, you'll need to use something like fr_FR.
