The problem is that the language packs are not on the server, and the background download task gets a "404" error and does not catch it.

Ubuntu's Gtk based installer displays an error message and offers to continue the installation without the langpacks. Kubuntu's installer just sits there, consumes 100% CPU and freezes, making a full installation of Kubuntu Gutsy impossible.

IMHO this is a showstopper bug for Kubuntu Gutsy.
