Description vijay 1999-11-23 05:28:07 UTC
from a terminal when I call linuxconf the linuxconf window popsup, but on the terminal I find a message from the remadmin saying "locale not supported by C library". If I try changing the configuration now , it gives me the following error message repeatedly " Error message from remadmin: Gtk-Critical: file gtkwidget.c: line1584 (gtk_widget_map):assertion 'GTK_WIDGET_VISIBLE (widget) == TRUE' failed" and eventually tells that gnome-linuxconf has crashed. We previously had Redhat Linux 6.0. We didnt face any problem with that version.

What is your current locale ? Try : $ locale

~$ locale LANG=en LC_CTYPE="en_US" LC_NUMERIC="en_US" LC_TIME="en_US" LC_COLLATE="en_US" LC_MONETARY="en_US" LC_MESSAGES="en_US" LC_ALL=en_US Hm, should probably be en_AU for me. Where do I change this (Both for myself and the system default)? I see this problem as well, but I'm running linuxconf-1.16r6-1, from the linuxconf site, which may or may not be relevent.

This locale problem also appears to cause a number of RedHat 6.1 SRPMS not to build with locale support. Since they build without locale support and the spec files list the /usr/share/locale/*/*/* (or something similar) they fail to build RPMS. For instance, shadow-utils will not build on RedHat 6.1 as well as most of Gnome and KDE.

The locale message is not related to the Gtk-Critical message. This is also completely unrelated to the locale build issue that dath mentions.

Please try this again with linuxconf-1.17r1-2 and gnome-linuxconf-0.24-1 from Raw Hide. The GTK errors should be gone. Upgrading to the latest errata version of initscripts (4.70-1) should fix part of the locale problem. Your LANG variable should include a country code; if it doesn't, modifying the LANG variable in /etc/sysconfig/i18n should change the system default. (I've checked with the latest versions of linuxconf and gnome-linuxconf and despite the locale warning from GDK, it appears to continue running without problems.) Please let me know if this solves your problems.
