2 questions:

1) Was this an upgrade from a previous install?

2) What does /etc/sysconfig/i18n contain?
Comment 2 Michael Goll 2002-11-15 17:27:14 EST

Thanks for the tip

Here's what I had in /etc/sysconfig/i18n

#LANG must be a two letter ISO code per sysconfig.txt

When I removed everything except the LANG="en_US" line, redhat-config-language
worked and created this:


Do you suppose it could at least issue an error message along the lines of 
"Unable to process format of /etc/sysconfig/i18n"?


Take care...

The problem is that the "@euro" on the end of the 'fr_FR@euro' is confusing the
parser.  I will try to fix this now.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-12-15 11:01:29 EST
Should be fixed in redhat-config-language-1.0.1-10.  Thanks for your report. 
QA, please verify.

fixed, please reopen this report.
