didn't give me the correct language.

It gaved me the Simple Chinese language, not the Traditional Chinese language.

Please check this bug.

While I'll investigate this myself once I've finished moving house and have the rest of my working environment back, it might speed things up if one of you could attach /var/log/syslog from the installer (or /var/log/installer/syslog if you've rebooted into the installed system).

If you were willing to re-run the installer using 'sudo env UBIQUITY_DEBUG=1 ubiquity' from a terminal window (be sure to use a password you don't care about, as the password will appear in the debug log file) and attach the resulting /var/log/syslog from that, then that would help even more.

If you don't mind, I believe that there are still some subtle country-handling bugs in localechooser and I would like to leave this bug open while I investigate them.

I found a way in which this could happen (select Traditional Chinese and then select a city in a country without a Chinese locale, such as London; you'll end up with Simplified Chinese). This upload fixes that case, which I think is probably roughly what the original reporter was running into.

ubiquity (1.1.30) edgy; urgency=low

  * Add /usr/lib/ubiquity/console-setup/locale wrapper that overrides the
    output of locale with the value of debian-installer/locale if set; this
    encourages console-setup to select an appropriate keyboard layout
    (closes: Malone #60067).
  * Don't set PARTMAN_UPDATE_BEFORE_COMMIT for automatic partitioning.
  * Run partman-commit while generating the installation summary to make
    sure that we have a partitioning summary even for manual partitioning
    (closes: Malone #61572). Take care to stop partman-commit proceeding
    past the confirmation question.
  * Don't reset the locale or run localechooser again if the country
    selected on the timezone page isn't one for which we have a locale in
    the current language (closes: Malone #61387).

  * Add/update .desktop file translations from Rosetta: Arabic, Belarusian,
    Czech, Kashubian, Spanish, Estonian, French, Frisian, Irish,
    Luxembourgish, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Portuguese (Brazil),
    Slovak, Swedish, Tajik, Ukrainian, Chinese (Taiwan).
  * Add/update translations from Rosetta: Afrikaans, Amharic, Bulgarian,
    Bengali, Breton, Catalan, Czech, Kashubian, Welsh, Danish, German,
    Divehi, Dzongkha, Greek, Esperanto, Spanish, Basque, Persian, Finnish,
    French, Irish, Galician, Hebrew, Hindi, Croatian, Hungarian, Indonesian,
    Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Georgian, Khmer, Kurdish, Kirghiz,
    Lithuanian, Latvian, Malagasy, Macedonian, Malay, Norwegian Bokmål,
    Dutch, Occitan, Polish, Portuguese, Portuguese (Brazil), Romanian,
    Russian, Northern Sami, Slovak, Slovenian, Serbian, Swedish, Tamil,
    Thai, Tagalog, Turkish, Chinese (China), Chinese (Hong Kong).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: base-installer
