Title: Add more languages for installation from live CD

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Vojtech Zeisek (vojtaeus)

Actually, when I boot from live CD and I choose for example Czech on
the first boot screen, I boot to fully English environment of
KDE/GNOME. Some applications like Mozilla are translated. This is OK, I
understand CD can not contain support for all languages.
But at least YaST Live Installer should be translated to all languages
. Look at Ubuntu: it speaks English during live session, but installer
is localized. Preferably, whole YaST should be translated. It should
not be so big wasting of space...
There is also another problem: for example I'm used to Czech keyboard
layout, but even I choose Czech during boot, the KDE uses English
keyboard. This is very unpleasant especially when typing passwords. Why
should I bother with keyboard settings in KDE Control Center which will
be lost during install? The live session should use keyboard map and
locales of language selected on boot screen .

Translations of YaST Live Installer should be most important thing.
Installation from openSUSE DVD is localized to many languages so LiveCD
do also.

+ Guys, i´m worried it´s not possible yet. I requested it a time ago.
+ Take a look -
+ But i´d appreciate that installation from liveCD installs chosen
+ language without no any additional runnig YaST. Current openSUSE
+ status: We have to run YaST for additional fully language support after
+ installation E.g. Ubuntu installs full language support during
+ installation. So after installation you have fully localized desktop.
+ That means no more additional runnig synaptics for language support.
