Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 82528
Firstboot should be in chosen languages

Description of problem:
For CJK installation, first boot is in English rather than CJK
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install in CJK
Firstboot in English.
Firstboot in CJK
I believe this is caused because, when init script runs it is running in
Enlish since we can't show CJK on the console. It would be good when firstboot
runs, if it can grep /etc/sysconfig/i18n value and determine the locale from
I've tried adding ". /etc/profile.d/lang.sh" to the top of the initscript on my
test machine as notting suggested, but this had no effect.
notting: any other idea what I need to do in the initscript? running
/usr/sbin/firstboot directly brings up Japanese just fine, so there must be
something missing in the initscript.
notting: any ideas here? I'm sort of over my head in initscript land.
Fixed in CVS. What happens is that since /etc/init.d/functions sets LC_MESSAGES
to en_US, this gets inherited from /etc/rc, so we have to unset it first.
QA: firstboot-1.0.5-2 should contain the fix.
Fix confirmed with firstboot-1.0.5-2.
