Description Sergey V. Udaltsov 2003-01-09 22:15:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.3.1 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20021204

Description of problem:
There is a line:

NETDEVICES=`service network status |grep -A1 "Currently active devices" |tail -n1`

After than $NETDEVICES is used to reconfigure interfaces

This line does not work for non-english locales - because "Currently active
devices" is localized in /etc/rc.d/init.d/network.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Put LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 into /etc/sysconfig/i18n, suspend and resume the computer.

Actual Results:  Interface lo is down

Expected Results:  Interface lo should be up

This is fixed in 3.0.2-16.

In RH9 - still an issue. Even all these LC_ALL and LANG settings do not help.
The reason is that apmscript calls /etc/init.d/network. This bash script creates
new bash instance which calls /etc/bashrc which calls all these /etc/profile.d
scripts (incluging lang.sh) so ...

The only way for me was to modify /etc/init.d/network (remove '$' character
before status messages. Bad but it works...

Comment 3 Rupert Pupkin 2003-05-14 16:13:38 UTC
I think the problem is that /etc/init.d/network calls /etc/init.d/functions,
which in turn calls /etc/sysconfig/i18n, giving you nice localized status
messages :( 

But /etc/sysconfig/i18n will only be called if $NOLOCALE is not set. So the lines 


in the script /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmscript right after the line 


did the trick for me. I didn't have to modify /etc/init.d/network.

Makes sense, will be in 3.0.2-19.
