Description Srin Tuar 2005-01-07 17:05:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
The vietnamese locale, vi_VN, as shipped with fc3, does not sort text
correctly. Pablo Saratxaga has created a modified vi_VN for mandrake,
after installing that on my fc3 things worked much better! It would be
nice if we could include it in the next fedora core- or even better if
Ulrich could get it in the next glibc release.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a file TOSORT.txt containting the lines
2. LC_ALL=vi_VN sort < TOSORT.txt

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Additional info:

the sprm "locales-", is googleable, it
contains a copy of vi_VN which can be made to generate
a good Vietnamese locale

I assume you're a native speaker and can vouch for the correctness (or better

Comment 3 Srin Tuar 2005-07-07 02:37:46 UTC
I am not a native speaker.

Comment 4 Ulrich Drepper 2005-07-08 01:32:48 UTC
If you're not a native speaker, why should your information be trusted?  Unless
you can soon produce conclusive evidence from an authorative sources I'll close
the bug as NOTABUG.

Comment 5 Nguyen Thai Ngoc Duy 2005-07-08 10:02:17 UTC
There is a bug on glibc bugzilla on vi_VN
And yes, i'm a native Vietnamese speaker, Vietnamese GNOME translation
coordinator and translator of other projects so you may trust me :)
BTW, could you close glibc bug 448 please?

Comment 6 Ulrich Drepper 2005-07-08 16:20:39 UTC
I've added the new version to the upstream CVS.  The proposed changes in the
sourceware bug system is quite different.  Since that bug was older I
disregarded that version.  But somebody better verify that this is correct.

Comment 7 Nguyen Thai Ngoc Duy 2005-07-10 09:49:28 UTC
I have some comment about this on sourceware bug system because as the time i
was checking mails, redhat bugzilla was down. Please have a look.

Comment 8 Lawrence Lim 2006-08-31 01:08:34 UTC
Bug has been resolved upstream.
