Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 215918
date printed in Japanese, ends up garbled
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:03:59 EDT
1. Install RHEL5 in Japanese
2. Boot up in text mode
The date will show up garbled (something like 2006年 11月 16日 木曜日 11:07:00
GMT, but without a UTF-8 capable font)
lang.sh needs to set LC_TIME to en_US to avoid garbled display on bootup.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
Why isn't LC_TIME inherited from $LANG?
Also, is this only on bootup?
Also also, what version of initscripts?

I'm on crack. I checked this when lang.sh wasn't there. The old initscript used
to change LC_MESSAGES.
