Description Matt Wilson 2003-10-23 14:43:40 EDT
Description of problem:
on-disk locale format seems incompatible with s390x glibc.  It is compatible
only with s390 glibc library.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Steps to Reproduce:
[root@fido foo]# file /usr/bin/locale
/usr/bin/locale: ELF 64-bit MSB executable, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux
2.4.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
[root@fido foo]# LANG=en_US.UTF-8 /usr/bin/locale -k week-1stday
[root@fido foo]# file ./usr/bin/locale
./usr/bin/locale: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux
2.2.10, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
[root@fido foo]# LANG=en_US.UTF-8 ./usr/bin/locale -k week-1stday

also affects ppc64
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2003-10-27 14:04:29 EST
Fix is in glibc-2.3.2-95.4.
Comment 4 Brock Organ 2003-11-11 16:22:15 EST
verified fixed in erratum RHSA-2003:334 with glibc-2.3.2-95.6 on ppc64
and s390x ...
