Description Owen Taylor 2003-01-15 02:36:52 UTC
Choose American English (or any other language) from the install,
log in.

You get a GDM_LANG/LANG setting of, e.g., en_US.utf8. Xlib
requires en_US.UTF-8 to function correctly.

I'm not sure if this is a locale.alias problem or there is 
supposed to be a translation of utf8 to UTF-8 in the GDM

It worked correctly in 8.0

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-15 03:13:11 UTC
The gdm locale.alias does have "UTF-8" so there is something strange going on.
(someday we really should just fix Xlib here...)

via email:

I fixed it in CVS and it's in so perhaps you're looking at the
"fixed" version :)

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-01-16 21:14:34 UTC
Taking GDM target/blockers.

Comment 4 Owen Taylor 2003-01-17 00:22:30 UTC
Indeed seems to be fixed
