You can specify any of those additional languages by specifying the language
code supported by glibc. See /usr/share/anaconda/locale-list on a system with
anaconda installed for the list.
Comment 2 P Jones 2003-02-21 15:40:42 EST
This should be fixed in redhat-configure-kickstart and in the kickstart
documentation at
should referance instead of a misleading list.
Comment 4 Tammy Fox 2003-02-21 16:01:04 EST
I think you read my mind. I changed the next version of the kickstart docs to 
point to the list in /usr/share/redhat-config-language/locale-list instead of
listing them in the manual. Since this bug was pasted to me, I will now pass it
on to the r-c-kickstart component to make sure that list has been synced with
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2003-02-25 15:18:20 EST
Yes, I grabbed a new locale-list from anaconda.  Whatever the latest version in
Rawhide is should have the updated list.
