Description of problem:
During installation I selected Dutch as default and English (USA) as additional
Pointing to the 'language' selection on gdm after booting Phoebe opens a large
window of all languages that Red Hat supports, which is odd because I only
installed Dutch and English.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. During installation, select only a couple of languages, e.g. Dutch & English.
2. After installation at the gdm screen, click on 'language'.
Actual Results: Notice that gdm offers all languages from A to Z
Expected Results: Maybe gdm should only offer those languages which the user
chose during installation?
Red Hat Linux release 8.0.92 (Phoebe)
Hmm, I'm not sure this is a good idea; we don't really have a global concept of
"which languages are installed" - the selection in the installer only affects
those packages that the installer installs. You could still have a lot of stuff
installed that *did* support more languages, either because you did an upgrade,
or because you installed third-party packages. Also, I think we're changing it
so that you get all translations always, and the language choice is just for
your default language, though I could be wrong about that.
I confirmed that all languages will always be installed now, so
I think this is no longer an issue.
It might be nice if you could configure what languages gdm offered;
that enhancement request should really go to bugzilla.gnome.org.
