Description deniz 2001-11-05 16:28:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
cd /usr/lib/locale
ln -s tr_TR tr_TR.ISO8859-9
ln -s tr_TR.utf8 tr_TR.UTF8

Otherwise, keyboard and several other programs are not able to find turkish
locale correctly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the system, try to use keyboard and/or other Turkish specific setups.

Actual Results:  Locale information is not found -- so for example the
keyboard I submitted in an earlier bug report will not work correctly. 

Expected Results:  locale tr_TR and tr_TR.utf8 should have been sufficient.

problems and solutions.

This is not a solution, it is a workaround.
What exact programs don't work properly without this hack?
Have you tried stracing them to see what they actually do?
glibc locale functions are perfectly able to find, try:
LC_ALL=tr_TR.ISO8859-9 locale -c LC_CTYPE -k
LC_ALL=tr_TR locale -c LC_CTYPE -k
LC_ALL=tr_TR.UTF-8 locale -c LC_CTYPE -k
LC_ALL=tr_TR.UTF8 locale -c LC_CTYPE -k
