language support is not installed by selecting few languages.
Last modified: 2013-07-02 21:05:21 EDT
Description of problem:
While selecting Hindi, Punjabi,Japanese, zh_CN, ko_KR, Language support is not installed. But if you install lao, Malay (Malaysia) language, then it install language support
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run system-config-langauge
2. select language Korean (Republic...)
3. press OK
4. as root, try to run 'yum groupinstall korean-support'
5. check if any package is there to install
there are all language support package yet need to install with yum.
there should be no package to install with step 5, (as s-c-language should install language support package)
1) /etc/sysconfig/i18n - it is ko_KR
2) it is problem with few languages only, like *_IN, CJK
It works for all "mandatory" packages listed in comps for all languages, hence I guess this is not a bug. For example I do not see any "mandatory" packages in zh_CN, ko_KR and japanese but it works and installs if you remove lohit-punjabi-fonts, lohit-hindi-fonts for punjabi & hindi respectively, because these are listed as "mandatory".
Try to use s-c-lang, and then run 'yum groupinstall <LAMG>-support, it will show differences. it should not be "mandatory" only, but works same way as 'yum' doing.

I guess then, this makes it a feature request...
