Description of problem:
Starting redhat-config-date from a running X-Server produces the following error:
(redhat-config-date.py:4429): Gdk-WARNING **: DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID contains
redhat-config-date requires a currently running X server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results: see error
Expected Results: what?

behavior on my test machines.
There's no such file on my system.
I checked all 3 CDs from RH9. There's no package, providing this file.
What should be in it?
The /etc/sysconfig/i18n file is created by the installer during installation, so
it's not in any package. If this file is not present, the system has no way of
knowing what language the system should use.
Since you are emailing me from a .de domain, I'm assuming that you want your
system to use German as the default language. If so, your /etc/sysconfig/i18n
file should look like:
Creating the file with those contents should allow redhat-config-date to run.
However, a bigger question is how that file got deleted. I can't really help
answer that question.
Please reopen this bug report if the problem doesn't go away after creating the
