Incomplete language support even with all languages preseeded

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Hi, this is using Ubiquity 1.10.8 from the daily DVD image on 10/27/2008.

Even with preseeding all languages that are included in the manifest, Ubiquity creates a note for postinstall that language support is incomplete.

Here is the relevant preseed key that is still causing it:

Sorry we haven't followed up until now; generally speaking I find it logistically very difficult to do serious work on the DVD for a variety of awkward reasons.

Could you apply the following patch to /usr/share/ubiquity/ (edit it by hand and massage to fit if necessary; it's in the install_language_packs method), re-run this test, and attach /var/log/syslog and /var/log/installer/debug to this bug report? Thanks in advance.

I've committed a fix to bzr to adjust what I believe to be a logic problem with this. It was freaking out on "language-support-aa".

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 1.11.5

ubiquity (1.11.5) jaunty; urgency=low

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Full screen the window when in ONLY_UBIQUITY mode. The extra screen
    real estate makes the timezone map, among other widgets, easier to
  * Modified the keyboard setup page to produce a more visually obvious
  * Automatic update of included source packages: grub-installer
    1.36ubuntu1, localechooser 2.09ubuntu1, user-setup 1.23ubuntu8.

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Adjust logic for detecting incomplete language support. Just
    because a package doesn't "exist" doesn't mean that language support
    isn't all there. Some packages don't yet provide language-support-XY
    packages. (LP: #290398)

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Remove old XFS-on-/boot validation, no longer needed now that
    grub-install has been fixed (LP: #8058).
  * Default hostname to 'oem-laptop' or 'oem-desktop' as appropriate in OEM
    mode, to allow OEM installations to be fully preseeded (thanks, Twisted
    Lincoln, Inc.; LP: #321341).
