Thai support in framebuffer d-i
Thanks to the recent grub-pc break down, I had a chance
to test d-i when trying to recover one of my machines.
I happened to run /bin/sh in the partition to recover,
in which th_TH locale is set by default, and Thai
messages are just displayed perfectly, even in
full-screen dialogs, thanks to the font and terminal
So, Thai can be enabled in text-mode d-i.
Another thing I found counter-intuitive is the locale
and timezone choosing based on the installer language.
What if g-i cannot run on my hardware (which is likely
to be the case if it's switched to X11, due to the broken
i830M support , for example) but I need to install
Debian on it with my locale and timezone selected?
It's impossible with the current UI design.
