Package: localechooser Version: 2.08 Severity: important Localechooser currently contains the code: if echo $LANG $LC_CTYPE | grep -q UTF-8; then INITIAL_LANGUAGE=en else INITIAL_LANGUAGE="" fi There's a comment above it giving some background, but it looks like setting debconf/language to empty is just plain wrong. If I start D-I over serial console on sparc, back out from the first localechooser dialog to the menu and then start choose-mirror, I get country codes instead of names in the mirror country list. The same happens when I change the 4th line of that snippet to: INITIAL_LANGUAGE=C Changing the line to set 'en' gives a correct language list. Arguably this could also be a bug in cdebconf as it does not do the "right thing" by default. Note that the default LANGUAGE setting also plays a role here. IIRC that is C (or C.UTF8 on real console?), which could possibly be changed to C:en.
