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

Comment 3 Anonymous 1999-11-26 04:43:59 UTC
~$ 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.

Comment 5 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-01 21:06:59 UTC
The locale message is not related to the Gtk-Critical message.
This is also completely unrelated to the locale build issue
that dath mentions.

Comment 6 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-01-20 13:37:59 UTC
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.
