This test case exercises the installation using Cyrillic language. Testing also includes verifying proper keymap selected during installation.

How to test

  1. Boot and initiate an install using any installation source (e.g. boot.iso, CD, DVD, live image or pxeboot)
  2. Proceed through the installer until the Language Selection step
  3. Choose an Cyrillic language, such as Russian, and its related keymap in the Keyboard Selection step
  4. At the Disk Partitioning screen, select Encrypt System, click Next
  5. When prompted, enter a passphrase twice
  6. Finish installation and reboot
  7. Type your passphrase for decryption
  8. Select your user and type your password in the display manager
  9. Open at least two text editors and type characters specific to the keymap
  10. Open a web browser and test text input
  11. Open a terminal and try to log in as root

Expected Results

  1. The correct character set is displayed in the language selection step
    • Graphical installs have different support than text-mode
  2. The appropriate keymap is selected based on the language
  3. Text input using the selected keymap works as expected
  4. Text appears to be translated in the selected language
  5. The appropriate timezone is selected based on the language
  6. Block devices are encrypted (install-time) and decrypted (boot-time) using characters specific to the keymap
  7. The language package is selected and installed by default
  8. The installed system is configured as expected
    • /etc/sysconfig/i18n matches the language selected
    • Firstboot, GDM defaults to the selected keymap
    • GDM accepts user password defined in Firstboot
    • Root password defined during installation is accepted
    • Language specific characters work on text editors and web browsers
    • Applications built using different toolkits have the same text input behavior
