/etc/locale.conf: line 1: locale.LANG=en_US.UTF-8: command not found
Last modified: 2013-05-29 09:13:29 EDT
dracut logs the following:
Oct 27 14:35:58 localhost dracut-cmdline: dracut-18 (Spherical Cow) dracut-024-5.git20121019.fc18
Oct 27 14:35:58 localhost dracut-cmdline: /etc/locale.conf: line 1: locale.LANG=en_US.UTF-8: command not found
$ cat /etc/locale.conf
That happens when there's a kernel command-line for the locale ('locale.LANG=' or even the old 'LANG=') regardless of /etc/locale.conf existing or not.
Is there a workaround for this? Seems to delay the time it takes to get to gdm significantly.
Also I'm getting this problem and there is no LANG= or locale.LANG= anywhere in my /etc/default/grub. Fresh install of fedora 18 beta with all updates. Problem started only after running updates.
Worked around by regenerating grub manually. boot speed issue remains but is totally different bug
That's a dracut bug, which will be fixed soon.
It sounds like the effect of this is extra errors in kmsg on boot and a slight slowdown of the boot process.
If I'm understanding correctly, I'm -1 blocker on this. It doesn't clearly hit any of the F18 release criteria and could be fixed post-release as an update.
the slowdown is nothing to do with this bug, it was a GDM bug. -1 blocker, there is no indication this has any blocker consequences.
As it seems to be unrelated to GDM slowdown and I don't see any other issues reported, I'm -1 blocker too. In case it causes any other difficulties, please comment it. Still it would be great to have a fix, but it's "just" a bug.
That makes for -3 blocker, moving to rejected.
