Description Kolar, Petr 1999-05-25 08:55:11 EDT
If some user has tcsh as her login shell, the environment
variables LC_ALL, LANG, LINGUAS etc. (which are set by the
script /etc/profile.d/lang.sh for bash) are not set. This
bug is in Red Hat since introducing /etc/sysconfig/i18n.

Comment 1 Kolar, Petr 1999-05-25 11:42:59 EDT
To correct the bug use /etc/profile.d/lang.csh with this contents:

if ( -r /etc/sysconfig/i18n ) then
        eval `sed -e 's/ *#.*//' -e 's/^\([^=][^=]*\)=\(.*\)/setenv \1
\2;/' /etc/sysconfig/i18n`

If no comments are allowed in /etc/sysconfig/i18n, then "-e 's/
can be omitted.
Comment 2 Jay Turner 1999-06-28 11:39:59 EDT
This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-24 22:56:59 EDT
This is fixed in the latest initscripts - it has a lang.csh.
