Description Michal Schmidt 2012-11-29 14:14:36 EST
Fedora is migrating away from:
 /etc/sysconfig/network (the HOSTNAME=... setting)
 /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
 /etc/sysconfig/i18n
to:
 /etc/hostname
 /etc/vconsole.conf
 /etc/locale.conf

See the tracker bug 881785 for details.

We found:
./initscripts-9.42/setsysfont uses /etc/sysconfig/i18n.

./initscripts-9.42/sysconfig.txt talking about /etc/sysconfig/network:
   HOSTNAME=<fqdn by default, but whatever hostname you want>

./initscripts-9.42/sysconfig.txt talks about /etc/sysconfig/i18n, /etc/sysconfig/keyboard. Describes /etc/sysconfig/i18n as a valid fallback for /etc/vconsole.conf, but the plan is to remove the support for it completely.

Please update the package for the new config files.
Comment 1 Lukáš Nykrýn 2012-11-30 05:16:28 EST
I think we can drop setsysfont entirely, it was used in rc.sysinit.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2012-12-07 15:52:40 EST
Done in git. Currently, it still reads /etc/sysconfig/i18n if locale.conf doesn't exist at all. Should it?
Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2012-12-07 16:37:41 EST

I would prefer fallback paths like this to go away entirely throughout the distro.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2012-12-10 11:14:43 EST
OK. Will add that change on master.
