Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23713
Anaconda uses wrong russian locale in instimage. See bug #16892 for details - it still exist
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:39:07 EDT
Basic character map for language "Russian" in Red Hat Linux is KOI8-R.
Locale directory for this charmap is currently
/usr/lib/locale/ru_RU.koi8r. Since LANG name for Russian is ru_RU.KOI8-R
(it's correct), script upd-instroot removes
/usr/lib/locale/ru_RU.koi8r as unused. Please use my patch or find other
way to preserve ru_RU.koi8r for installation.
As for /usr/lib/locale/ru_RU, it is for iso8859-5 charmap and it may be
removed without pain. My patch is tested.

complete solution to fix this bug
I've changed lang-table to refer to ru_RU.koi8r, which will properly preserve
the locale files for the install image.
You'll see this change in beta3
verified fix in qa0116.3 ... thanks for your report!
