Description of problem:
have three languages installed according to /etc/sysconfig/i18n, but no options
appear in the redhat-config-language GUI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. This behaviour is true on both 7.3 -> 8.0 upgraded machines, but not on fresh
Actual Results: Language choice GUI is left blank.
Contents of /etc/sysconfig/i18n are:
[pete@madrone pete]$ more /etc/sysconfig/i18n
Expected Results: ought to be two (three?) options in the GUI, corresponding
to: en, en_CA (& en_US ?)
Ah, rats. redhat-config-language is expecting the contents of
/etc/sysconfig/i18n to be in the form "en_US.UTF-8" instead of en_US.
I'm not sure if the entries in /etc/sysconfig/i18n should have been migrated to
a UTF tag or not. I'll check on that.
In any case, redhat-config-language should have a way of handling it.
I was about to report the same bug for my upgraded 7.3->8.0 system.
contents of my i18n file:
I'm working on a fix at the moment.
In case this helps..
I changed my i18n contents to:
(logged out and back in again, and double-checked LANG envar)
..and the choices are still blank.
Oh, I see now.. I've changed SUPPORTED in i18n to
and now I've got a choice of "English(USA)". OK.
Say, shouldn't SYSFONT be "latarcyrheb-sun16"?
Yes, the SYSFONT should be "latarcyrheb-sun16"
Ok, I have made a new version available at:
I have not been able to test it thoroughly, so maybe you all could give it a
try. If this works for you, I will push it out to Rawhide.
