Description helmut katzgraber 1999-11-17 16:41:18 EST
the ispell dictionnaries for spanish and german (have not checked the
others -- might be the same) provided by:


install the documentation in /usr/doc, but do *not* put the hashes and
other dictfiles in /usr/lib/ispell.

cheers, helmut.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 17:20:59 EST
$ rpm -qlp ispell-german-3.1.20-22.i386.rpm
$ rpm -qlp ispell-spanish-3.1.20-22.i386.rpm

You want to install it with
LANG=all rpm -Uvh ...
to install all files, even those flagged for languages not
used on the system.

Future versions of the ispell package will not mark those
files as language-specific, on the theory that if you
install ispell-german, you want the german dictionary even
if the machine is set up for, say, english.  However, the
dicts package will still (at least for now) have language-tagged
files, so the LANG=all trick will still be useful.
