Re: (forw) Re: debian-installer feedback, incorrect locale and unclear " deslection" text

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your reply.

2. I selected English, United Kingdom British English during the
install.  Then when I get into X, my config is pc104 (not pc105 as is UK
standard), and also the locale is "us".  So I have to fix the
XF86Config-4 manually.  [1] what I fixed it to

This is not a "locale" but a keyboard variant....

Anyway, there is currently not automated setup of locali{z|s}ation
(which includes keyboard settings for X) when the chosen instalaltion
language is English. This basically comes from D-I design choices when
the package responsible for this (localization-config) was added.

In, the next generation of D-I, localization config will be installed,
and thus used, when the locale will be != en_US, so in your case, it
will be able to make the small modification you need for X keyboard settings.

Kostas, you maybe could already put what's needed in l-c for correct X
keyboard settings when the locale is en_GB : pc105 and not pc104....

Ok, perhaps it could also install ISpell ibritish package instead of
iamerican too? (If they are necessary that is, they seem to only be in stable
for some reason, ar they being phased out?.)

wamerican seems to get installed as well unncessariliy, I did not select
any American things at any point.

Also kde-i18n-engb package, which was not installed even though i
selected British English from the install.

I think the locale should be set to en_GB.UTF-8 as well, mine ended up
as C after installing.

(Also you might like to allow for secondary language installs, for
isntance in the similar way to MDK which allows me to add Japanese and
Korean ans secondary languages.  This means I get all my fonts and
packages ready should I wish to use KDE, terminals and web browsers in
that secondary language)

3. XF86Config-4 has two mice entries, even though I only have a single
PS/2 Optical Mouse. See appendix [2] for both entires

This is mostly to be reported against the xfree86 packages....

Where should I send that?  i thought debian-installer generated the
XF86Config-4 file?  If not, which program generates it?

I am experiencing a problem in debconf, where is best to post this?

debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Kde
debconf: (Can't locate Qt.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd/Kde/Wizard.pm line 7.)

N.B. Please include my email address in any replies.

Kind regards
