Package: debian-installer
Version: bullseye-rc1
Severity: grave

While trying to debug another problem yesterday, I found that the RC1 graphical
installer fails to go forward, when selecting one of these languages:
	- Kannada
	- Marathi
	- Persian
	- Sinhala

(tested with rc1-netinst and -netboot image, on an amd64 qemu machine with 1G RAM)

Installer hangs, with only displaying a headline and nothing more, eating up
all CPU time.

Interestingly, yesterday's daily does not have this problem, while RC1 has!!!
And sadly it has not been discovered, that alpha3 is also affected, while 
alpha2 is fine!

Yet another problem which started to appear with alpha3, just like 
"Bug#987377: rescue-mode: when in graphical mode, locks up one prompt before the shell"

The commit 
"Drop fontconfig tweaks introduced in version 20170828 (See: #873462)" 
comes to my mind, also included in alpha3 ... ???

The text installer seems to be not affected (well, only Persian from the langs
above is available in text installer, and Persian works there).

We already have 
"Bug#983897: installation-reports: Installation in Uyghur hangs"
where the installer hangs at some later steps - noticed for Uyghur and Kannada
so far...
Uyghur is however not affected by this language chooser fail bug.

As already mentioned by Samuel, this may be another resurgence - in a tightened
form - of
"#929877: installation-reports: Buster installer hangs at hard disk step with 
arabic language"
from 2019, where the real reason has not been found...

   * Capture new-style GLib structured logging messages, ensuring that we
     stop losing messages generated by libraries using that structured
     logging (ie. GLib and Pango) instead of the old text-based logging
     (i.e. GTK 2) (Closes: #988589).
   * Postpone adding text to GtkTextView until GTK has done initial layout,
     to avoid running into an infinite loop that would result in only the
     title being displayed, and a hang of the installer (Closes: #988787).
     This fixes a number of scenarios including:
     - Hang before offering a shell in rescue mode [en] (Closes: #987377).
     - Hang immediately with Sinhala and other languages (Closes: #987449).
     - Hang in various places with Swedish (mirror selection or package
       manager configuration).
   [ Cyril Brulebois ]
   * Huge thanks to Simon McVittie for the incredible support!
   * Align the display of info messages (e.g. “Rescue mode”) to the right
     again, since Debian (logo and name) is back on the left side with the
     Homeworld theme.
   * Implement workaround to ensure info messages (e.g. “Rescue mode”) get
     displayed on the banner on the start-up screen (Closes: #882804).
