Description Miloslav Trmač 2012-10-29 16:53:01 UTC
Description of problem:
systemd has uses /etc/locale.conf instead of /etc/sysconfig/i18n if the former is present (see https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/963) and in the future will even entirely drop the support for /etc/sysconfig/i18n http://cgit.freedesktop.org/systemd/systemd/commit/?id=cae356ad49b505a5172d4dbb830d7ec8f32a9953 ).

Please update the tool to edit /etc/locale.conf  if it exists instead of /etc/sysconfig/i18n; if possible, it should be shipped in F18.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-language-1.3.5-13.fc19.src.rpm (by code inspection only)

Using s-c-l presently we are setting, 
SYSFONT as well in /etc/sysconfig/i18n, so what about same in new locale.conf file?

do we need SYSFONT attribute now?

I think the corresponding configuration has moved to /etc/vconsole.conf under new names, but please check with the systemd maintainers.
