Description Marc Beauregard 2003-12-05 22:08:17 UTC
when using a kickstart file and asking for english language, 
the install will go and enable support for all languages.

RHEL ES 3.0 

Create a kickstart config file with the UI tool, just enable English 
for language support, then run an install of RHEL ES 3.0 with this 
kickstart file: language support will be enabled for ALL languages.

Comment 2 Marc Beauregard 2003-12-08 23:07:25 UTC
Workaround for the bug:
Edit the config file to remove the --default= option on langsupport.
Thus, the line
langsupport  --default=en_US
langsupport  en_US

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-12-10 07:05:37 UTC
The latter is the correct syntax -- the former implies to set the
default but install all languages.

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2004-01-08 15:30:01 UTC
Should be fixed in system-config-kickstart-2.5.4-1.  Thanks for your
