I'd like to thank two people for that:
- Lior Kaplan who have done the Hebrew translation for Debian Etch (some two years ago) and as a result for all Debian-derived distros. That was what pushed me to match the record for Fedora...
- Mark Krapivner who sent me some quality translations and helped me finish it in time.
Hebrew speakers, please test. Few tips for the testers:
- The Beta release already contains the "Hebrew" selection, although at the time it was composed there was only some ~75% translated (and I've done many fixes later).
- Booting from an install image should give you Hebrew (עברית) when you start the install.
- If you boot a live-CD, you should select Hebrew at the gdm login screen (thank the GNOME translators). Then, you'll get a Hebrew desktop. (Double)-clicking on the installation icon on the desktop would start /usr/bin/liveinst in Hebrew (like any other application).
- If you boot KDE live-CD, there's a quirk. The kdm login screen present no language selection because of the different way of language setup in KDE. As a result, you'll get a KDE4 desktop in English and your locale would be en_US.UTF-8. The workaround for any foreign language install is to open a 'konsole' and run:
[note: if anyone has a non-commandline workaround/fix for KDE-live-CD, say so]
su - # Open a root shell (no password, it's a live CD)
