Description Michal Ambroz 2003-02-17 16:23:47 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):

How reproducible:

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
