Description David Woodhouse 2001-04-29 15:39:17 EDT
After asking about language options early in the install process, the
installer then cleverly enables the aspell-en-gb package for me by default.

Unfortunately, the system doesn't _use_ that dictionary - it still uses the
en_US dictionary which is shipped as part of the aspell program package.

It would be useful to have the installer create /usr/etc/aspell.conf with
the appropriate language option, or possibly to have a UI for the
installing user to select the system default from the installed dictionaries.

cf. bug #37092.

Aspell needs to learn how to do the right thing most likely.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-04-30 17:45:08 EDT
If you want to create files during install, that is an installer issue.

That being said, the current version (0.33.5-1) tries to deduce what to do from
the LANG variable.
