The X Libraries need the locale files to do language specific conversions.
On my servers, I install only the XFree86-libs component to be sure, that
to run a desktop on the servers, but I need some of the libs for certain
should open a remote display (namely emacs). You get annoying errors if
no files in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale
Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -ql XFree86-libs | grep locale
Actual Results: e.g. emacs-X11 does not run without the whole XFree86
the locale files are IMHO part of the library. They should be installed
with the libs
and not the main package
Agreed. This is something we recently discovered, and discussed changing.
Unfortunately, it was too late in devel cycle to change. I will try to make
the change happen soon though, as it makes total sense.
Thanks for bugzilla'ing it. It'll keep it on my mind. ;o)
Since the main XFree86 package contains this stuff, and it requires the
XFree86-libs package to be installed, it is safe for this to move to the
libs package without killing any dependancies.
Fixed in XFree86-4.0.3-13 in rawhide. Should appear during next sync.
