Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84478
GDM sets locales to .utf8 instead of .UTF-8 which is supported by Xlib
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
When logging in via gdm greeter, it sets locales unknown to Xlib - thus
localized applications behave strange.
Xlib supports only locales with .UTF-8. When it detects unknown locales it sets
C locales instead.
It would help to change all .utf8 to .UTF-8 in file /etc/X11/gdm/locale.alias
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. installed RH 8.0.93 Phoebe
2. choose graphical installation
3. login by some account choosing some locales
4. look at output of locale command
Actual Results: locale cs_CZ.utf8 or en_US.utf8 was set
Expected Results: locale cs_CZ.UTF-8 or en_US.UTF-8 should be set
My /etc/X11/gdm/locale.alias has UTF-8 for everything, not .utf8,
on latest install.
It is cool if it is already solved :).
I was just reporting how is it in Phoebe (beta release of what I suppose to be
RedHat 8.1) and wanted to be sure it will not be in final 8.1
