Different locales in gdm dialogs
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:04 EDT
Description of problem:
gdm has different locales for the dialog buttons:
Language: Rinonci, I Va
Session: Cancel, Ok
Reboot: Neni, Oyi
The system locale is en_US.UTF-8
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with locate en_US
2. Set init to 5
3. Click on Language, Session and Reboot
Taking GDM target/blockers.
I've never seen this on 4-5 installs in the last week or so, and nobody
else has reported it either. Do you have any idea about what is _different_
about your install? Are you still seeing it?
Need hints on reproduction.
I have installed the beta4 (en_US) with german keyboard layout and have upgraded
to the last packages from beehive.
$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n
I've also seen this on several installations now. The language selection
displays the yes/no in some unusual language and it happened with some
other dialogs, too.

OK, it turns out this is reproducible by putting LC_COLLATE=C in
/etc/sysconfig/i18n. No idea yet _why_ that would be the case.
Filed upstream with explanation and fix as:
Will build a new GDM with a patch.
184.108.40.206-4 fixes the problem for me.
