Description Bill Nottingham 2012-04-17 18:35:22 UTC
Description of problem:

(A corollary of bug 804216)

This means, at a minimum:
1) there's no way to use the yum-langpacks plugin to pull the proper langpacks for the package set
2) there's no way to use plugins such as the rhn-plugin to pull the content or repos (untested, but I don't see how it works without it)

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Note that langpacks are not being pulled in
2. Note "        conf += "plugins=0\n" in yuminst.py

Comment 1 Brian Lane 2012-04-19 18:01:25 UTC
I think this should be an optional cmdline argument, if I'm understanding things correctly it will start pulling in language packages if it is enable and some spins may not want that behavior.
