Description Kamil Páral 2013-01-02 18:55:38 UTC
Description of problem:
If I do a minimal installation using GUI, I end up in a system with en_US.UTF-8 locale. If I do the same using text mode, I end up in a system with POSIX locale.

That doesn't seem right, and intentional.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 18.37.8 (what about using just major.minor instead of major.minor.revision? it's freaking hard to remember)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install in text mode ("text" boot option)
2. type "locale"

Three digit numbers are used for stabilization branches, like for F18 beta/final and for RHEL.  Two digit numbers are used all the rest of the time.

I have a patch ready and approved, so if you still want this to F18, I can push it.

Comment 3 Kamil Páral 2013-01-10 15:03:03 UTC
This issue can be fixed post-install be editing /etc/locale.conf, setting LANG="en_US.UTF-8" and rebooting.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2013-05-10 06:16:43 UTC
Tested with 19 Beta TC3. Both text and graphical install show en_US.UTF-8 locale.
