Summary: Yast Language setting assumes the language you select is
the location where you like and Keyboard you use - wrong
Product: SUSE Linux 10.1

OS/Version: SuSE Linux 10.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None

If I choose and live in an English (UK) speaking country that is NOT located in
the UK I will choose the (UK) English. This will automatically set my location
to the UK. This is the case for Oceania where there is not an AU dictionary and
we definitely do not use a US dictionary. The closest dictionary for us is a UK
dictionary.

The chosen dictionary should have NO reliance to the location NOR the keyboard
you select.

For example. I Live in Australia, the closest dictionary is a UK English and I
use a US keyboard. These are all independent settings and do not effect each
other.

The same is true for the whole of Oceania region of the world.

Many countries use a UK dictionary and are NOT located in the UK NOR do they
use a UK keyboard.

I understand that there are very great differences in the dictionary for every
English speaking country, however in these countries they select an English
(UK) dictionary as the closest. Only in the USA do people use a US dictionary
– no one else – the closest is always the UK English dictionary for every
software package.
