Description Telsa Gwynne 2001-07-03 10:06:36 EDT
Text mode install. Selected a time zone of Europe/London. Then went
to package selection. Does the TZ selected have any bearing on the
locale that's expected?

I would have expected the 8859-15 fonts which contain our exciting new
Euro symbol to be pre-selected for me, since I had selected a UK keyboard,
a European/UK time zone, and a variety of European languages for the
system. They weren't, though. Am I just expecting too much? :) (I always
thought the fonts got picked on the basis of the keyboard and languages
chosen already.)

Trond you have ideas?
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-07-05 14:24:05 EDT
TZ selection does not have any bearing on the default and/or installed. As for
which fonts you're getting by default in XFree86, I'm not sure how that is
set... I'd assume it is application specific, based on the C locale.
Comment 3 Telsa Gwynne 2001-07-05 14:50:05 EDT
No, I'm talking about which fonts are selected for you by the installer,
not what font you get when you've done all the install and are just running
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-07-05 14:52:20 EDT
The font selection in anaconda is based on which language you choose to install in.
Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2001-07-06 12:48:30 EDT
comps file needs to install euro fonts for en_GB
Comment 6 Tim Powers 2001-07-06 13:07:35 EDT
OK. The 8859-15 fonts are now included in X installs if one of the install
languages selected is en_GB.
