Description wibrown@redhat.com 2017-03-08 01:34:48 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing atomic host in Australia, post install during SSH I see:

Last failed login: Wed Mar  8 11:32:57 AEST 2017 from on ssh:notty
There was 1 failed login attempt since the last successful login.
Last login: Wed Mar  8 11:29:00 2017
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_AU.UTF-8)
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_AU.UTF-8)
/bin/sh: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_AU.UTF-8)

Expected results: Locales outside of America work.

We're currently only shipping the officially supported list of locales. Unfortunately, en_AU.UTF-8 is not one of them. For the full list, see https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/pdf/7.0_Release_Notes/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-7-7.0_Release_Notes-en-US.pdf

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2017-06-06 21:29:45 UTC
Is there a plan to allow the addition of other locales (possibly via system containers)?

Comment 4 wibrown@redhat.com 2017-06-06 23:42:21 UTC
For now I have solved this by building my own atomic images with en_AU.

Comment 5 Jonathan Lebon 2018-01-15 15:50:26 UTC
If you don't mind, let's discuss this upstream? Whatever decision we come up with in Fedora will likely be followed by RHEL AH. I commented on an issue we already had on this, though we might end up opening a new one:
