Redhat Anaconda Language Selection


Hi Geeks,

During the installation process of Redhat i selected as primary langguage English and the second German. How can I switch between thes both langguages?

i want for example the netstat output in germand, and the manpages....

is this easy to switch?

hints are welcome

cheers

It's quite easy. In X you do this by using nice graphical tools.
When you're using the console, you have some environment variables you control the langiages with. The most important is LANG. When you want to change the language, you type
export LANG=languagecode
Not sure what is the code for German, but you may try "de_DE". English is default, so when the code is wrong, English is used. LANG affects man, for example. When you change LANG and run
man man
you should get man page in German.
There are some more similar variables, but this one is the most important. Now test if it works for you.
