Still are problems with locale.alias (some locales do not have aliases and some languages have incorrect aliases)
I send this message about 3 times, but don't get normal answer :(
Maybe it's hard to change 2 lines (from
"russian ru_RU.ISO-8859-5" and "russian : ru_RU.ISO-8859-5" to
"russian ru_RU.KOI8-R" and "russian : ru_RU.KOI8-R") and add 1 line:
in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias ???
(I'm not debian developer, I'm only debian user and if I do something
wrong or wrongly somebody can say me about this.)
Subject: Problems with locale
In my opinion file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias
from xlibs_4.1.0-0pre1v1.3_i386.deb package contains
missing and incorrect information about some locales.
Files /etc/locale.alias and /etc/locale.gen from package
locales 2.2.x that comes with libc6 2.2.x has changed
default locale format (from libc6 2.1.x) from format like
to format like this:
I think file usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias must
updated, because many languages now not have aliases and
if I start program it displays warnings:
"locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C" and does
work in English language.
for example there are no alias in old format (no ':') for
lithuanian locale - every time I must add this line manualy:
I think you must check that all locales from files
/etc/locale.alias and /etc/locale.gen has correct aliases
in file usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias
I found other problems too. Default rusian locale in unix
but file usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias from
xlibs_4.1.0-0pre1v1.3_i386.deb and /etc/locale.alias from
package locales_2.2.3-5_all.deb contains incorrect
russian : ru_RU.ISO8859-5
Can anybody help on these problems ?
