Can you attach pictures of the screens in question?

Comment 2 Zoltan Hoppar 2010-07-28 04:58:06 UTC
Not needed, because this is part of the Media check. Sorry for the bad expression. (This is still the same program what I have found in google from older FCore: So, when you're entering to test the written disk is THAT UI is only english. Is it possible to translate it, and use it as could be red by anybody? Also may be this could include also the very first grub boot menu too? I know this is tiny little pieces of the distribution, but this could make it much nearer to the users. What do you think? Could we have an POT file to these parts?
Or is any way to trigger to another language this part?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

This is not an isomd5sum issue. It happens because if we detect media we intentionally skip lang and keyboard selection step:

    If we're booting off the boot.iso, don't prompt for lang or kbd (#457595).

Note that this bz is for Live, which is probably ok, but bug #619410 is not.

At the beginning of stage2 yes - but this is a stage1 bug.

I think I saw some translation of F17 grub before release
but I think the framebuffer usage was reverted before the final release?
Maybe it will return for F18?

Anyway moving to F17.

Comment 7 Vladimir Serbinenko 2012-06-28 12:39:52 UTC
AFAIK the only thing which was reverted is using theme. But international support shoulf still be there.

Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2012-10-05 19:57:12 UTC
This interface is no longer in anaconda.
