Bug#379521: Install report, focusing on Hebrew l10n issues

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: cdrom in a qemu machine
Image version: Daily build from 2006-07-24
Date: 2006-07-24 00:40 +0100

Machine: qemu from Debian etch 0.8.1-1
Processor: i386
Memory: 128MB
Partitions: not important, I just had a 1GB image and had one partition
and one swap.

Output of lspci and lspci -n:
NA, the network was an rtl8139 emulation in qemu.

The installer started in text mode and not g-i, I assume it's something
to do with qemu.

Some installer screens are not translated. But most of them are in
Hebrew and it works really nicely too!

There is a screen to choose locale for Hebrew, It's not translated and I
think it makes more sense to default to the he_IL.UTF-8 locale all the
time. There is very little reason to use the default he_IL locale.

It fails to install during mkinitramfs with the error:
Cannot create /target/etc/mkinitramfs/initramfs.conf: Directory nonexistent
