Description Vadym Chepkov 2008-07-13 18:13:13 EDT
Description of problem:

authconfig fails in minimal installation (%packages --nobase)

# authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5 --update
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/authconfig", line 32, in <module>
    locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, '')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/locale.py", line 476, in setlocale
    return _setlocale(category, locale)
locale.Error: unsupported locale setting

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

After glibc-common is installed the problem goes away, but I think absence of
locale support shouldn't be a show stopper.
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2008-07-14 04:30:13 EDT
I don't think install without glibc-common can be fully working install. Also
glibc rpm requires glibc-common. And does the setlocale() call fail even when
the LANG is set to C?
