Description Olleg 2000-10-08 21:23:26 EDT
There is in locale.alias string:
russian         ru_RU.ISO-8859-5
It is not usable in Russia. Need change to:
russian         ru_RU.KOI8-R
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2000-10-09 03:34:10 EDT
ISO-8859-5 is the standard character set for Russia, the fact that KIO8-R
is more widely used does not change anything on it.
You can use LC_ALL=ru_RU.KOI8-R if you want to use KOI8-R, it is just 5
characters more typing (and typically you put it into /etc/sysconfig/i18n
