Description Håvard Wigtil 2004-06-24 15:30:52 EDT
Description of problem:
When AbiWord loads a document set to Norwegian in AbiWord, a message
stating that no dictionary for Norwegian Bokmål could be found is
displayed, an no spell check of the Norwegian text can be performed.

Both the language codes "no" and "nb" is used to refer to the most
common of the two official Norwegian written languages ("Bokmål", the
other one is "Nynorsk" / "nn").

The locale "no" seems to be most frequently used in Fedora, but some
applications (such as AbiWord and Mozilla) uses "nb" instead.
AbiWord searches for a dictionary for "nb", but fails to find one, as
aspell-no only provides a file for "no".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.50-4.1

Patch to set "nb" as an alias for "no"

This patch adds "nb" as an alias for "no", thus making spellchecking Norwegian
documents in AbiWord (and other applications that use the "nb" locale) work.
