Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
looking for russian locales:
locale -a |grep ru
------- cp1251 missed!
then, we'll create it
localedef -c -i ru_RU -f cp1251 ru_RU.CP1251
locale -a |grep -i ru_RU.cp1251
---- then it presents
Steps to Reproduce:
cp1251 is standard of Microsoft' design of russian codepage.
I'm using cp1251 for oracle app server, java and apache httpd.
The locale is important, because it is used often as result of moving or
porting software that's worked on MS Windows.
On my project it's required to recreate cp1251 locale everytime after update
glibc. the problem takes place on rh9, fc1-fc5.

We ship localedef so that users can easily build their locales.
Shipping a locale in 3 different charsets is more than sufficient, especially
when everybody should be using UTF-8 these days anyway.
