Description josip 2001-01-23 14:52:45 EST
Package anaconda-7.0.1-6 owns file /etc/rc.d/init.d/reconfig which attempts
to source /etc/sysconfig/i18n which does not exist.  I'm guessing that this
filename should have 'init' instead of 'i18n'.

Suggestion: fix this typo.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-24 15:34:53 EST
That is the correct filename.  This file normally exists (it is created by the
install process).

If it is missing you can touch the file to suppress the warnings.
Comment 2 josip 2001-01-24 16:01:28 EST
OK -- but it would be better if reconfig verified that 'i18n' exists before
attempting to source that file.  May I suggest

if [ -f /etc/sysconfig/i18n ]; then
  . /etc/sysconfig/i18n

instead of just sourcing blindly?
