How to extend extra language support in RHEL?


Hi friends,
Recently we have been provided with RHEL in our office. There, how do I extend Bangla support (I mean to install the fonts and key board layout)? Thanks in advance.

regards
anindyanuri

RHEL4 use: system-config-language and system-config-keyboard

RHEL3 use: redhat-config-language and redhat-config-keyboard

See the System Administration Guide for the keyboard details (Chapter 30);
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...ysadmin-guide/

And here for the language details (really not the much);

We have RHEL 4 in our office. That is why I used `system-config-language` but the surprise is that I am getting a list of the language installed in the system. There is no other button or anything to install another language.

Also I followed your links and from one of the links I get that, once I have a system installed, I need `system-config-language` (stated in the original doc. as `redhat-config-language` as that describes a version prior rel. 4) to change the language. From another RedHat FAQ I also get that `system-config-language` is the tool to switch between the languages which are installed during the installation ( http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_35_2375.shtm.
I am also getting the same effect. As I have to install another language, I am not getting any help from that tool.

So, how do I install another language?

Use either the installation media or up2date and install the kde-i18n-<Language(s)_of_choice> noarch rpm(s), for example;

rpm -Uvh kde-i18n-Hindi-3.3.1-2.1.noarch.rpm

up2date install kde-i18n-Hindi

Extra font packages may be required for complete support, like the ttfonts-XX and font-XX noarch rpms.
