Description Chris Ricker 2002-04-06 00:38:59 EST
anaconda creates, by default, /etc/sysconfig/i18n with the following contents:


This causes major problems with X.  The window manager I use (fluxbox) would not
start (reporting errors about X not supporting the specified locale),
applications reported failures loading default fonts, etc.  It acted as if the
locale en_US.iso885915 was bogus.  After I edited /etc/sysconfig/i18n and
changed all en_US.iso885915 to just en_US, everything worked correctly.
