Red face Want to add french language after installation


HI
I have a RHEL 4 server & it live.

During installation i just selected English language option, so only English language packages were installed.

Now a application has french data & when its imported on server, data becomes unreadable. so i want to install french language.

i searched for french language RPM's but couldn't find any.

Anyone has any idea, how to go about it

You need to change your locale to fr_FR.
What is the output of "locale -a"?
