For Romanian, /etc/sysconfig/i18n contains incorrect parameter
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
On Fedora 8 test 3 + updates as of October 11, 2007:
After a default installation of Fedora, the file /etc/sysconfig/i18n contains:
LANG="ro_RO.UTF_8" (INCORRECT !)
LANG="ro_RO.UTF-8" (CORRECT )
This leads to scrambled Romanian characters during boot (initialization scripts)
and other various problems around the whole system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a default installation of Fedora 8 test 3
2. During installation, choose "Romanian" as language and "ro_win" as keyboard.
3. Perform online updates as of October 11, 2007.
4. After boot, observe that Romanian characters during initialization scripts
and in other parts of the system are scrambled.
5. Open /etc/sysconfig/i18n with a text editor: it contains LANG="ro_RO.UTF_8"
instead of LANG="ro_RO.UTF-8".
/etc/sysconfig/i18n contains LANG="ro_RO.UTF_8" when the system is configured
for Romanian language.
/etc/sysconfig/i18n should contain LANG="ro_RO.UTF-8" whenever UTF-8 is used for
I think this bug is the bug of anaconda. I tested to change to Romanian language
with system-config-language, it is OK, and /etc/sysconfig/i18n contains
During installation and choosing the language, system-config-language isn't
installed and can not be used.
Anaconda is responsible for choosing the language during installation.
Thanks very much !
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
