I'd like to use the Finnish keyboard layout > (LC_CTYPE=fi_FI) but have everything else set to English > (LC_ALL=C). What should I choose? C != English, by the way....but that's not the point of this mail. How about continuing to choose English, then Finland? You will then have the opportunity to choose whatever keymap you want (LC_CTYPE has nothing to do with the used keymap anyway), you will get the timezone for Finland, etc. The *locale* on the installed system will be en_US, indeed (LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8). Because there is no en_FI (there is no point having such locale). This is what the message you quote is telling you, indeed. So, if you want to tweak your LC_* variables later on, you have to do it manually. We will not add support for this in the installer: locales are a deeply complicated things and, for 99% of users, there is no point in setting LC_* variables differently than LC_ALL. We thus assume that those people who need such finetuning will do it on their own later on on the installed system.
