Description Denice 2002-08-03 14:06:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020607

Description of problem:
It turns out to be important to specify the default language twice in the ks
configuration file when you install more than one language on a kickstarted
system.  The documentation example is wrong in the customization guide:
 "For example, to install English and French and use English as the
  default language:
  langsupport --default en_US fr_FR
If you do this then you will only have french locale glibc files in

Moreover, you environment in /etc/sysconfig/i18n will list only
fr_FR:fr as supported locales.

The correct format for the langsupport item is, for example:
 langsupport --default en_US.iso885915 en_US.iso885915 fr_CH

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try my config file (attached)
2. during installation toggle to the shell and look in:
