Actual Results: no Kinyarwanda choice
Expected Results: Expect to see Kinyarwanda on the list
It looks like you just need to add:
rw_RW utf8 latarcyrheb-sun16 Kinyarwanda (Rwanda)
rw_RW.UTF-8 utf8 latarcyrheb-sun16 Kinyarwanda (Rwanda)
to the locale-list file in /usr/share/redhat-config-language
Unlikely to be fixed for RHEL3. glibc-common doesn't seem to have this
locale in, so there is more work than simply adding that line - fonts,
locale messages, etc need to be considered. Defer until upstream has
If the locale gets added upstream it should be pulled in to future
releases of fedora and RHEL.
as per your request (firstname.lastname@example.org),
here are a list of bug reports and their entities I've hit so far:
This is the glibc update request. Attached is the localedef input file
email@example.com bug #1640 -- request to add rw_RW to the
locale information in that X release
bugs.xfree86.org bug #1494 -- request to add rw_RW to the locale
info in that release.
bugzilla.gnome.org bug #155778 asking for specific updates to gdm's
locale info to accomodate Kinyarwanda.
And, hopefully, within a week, a set up upgrades to KDE and GNOME to
supply Kinyarwanda names for languages, and countries, currency, etc.
Links to x/gnome bugs.
for 155778, gdm reports "Fixed in CVS head."
for xfee86, status is: 'committed -- thanks'
for glibc, the locale's gone thru a few rounds of updates, and has
been quiescent; I've written today to see if the issue can be closed.
I've entered an issue with x.org,
And a few miscellaneous with openoffice.org.
Please, the translation of mozilla is near 50%, and 1.x version of
openOffice is at 95%. Is there anything else to be done to move this
issue to closure?
