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