i've just started to get comfortable with iptables, so
i don't want to go back to ipchains again.

>lines over

i've found the following lines in /sbin/SuSEfirewall2:

export LANGUAGE=english
export RC_LANG=en_US
export LANG=en_US

what are these variables good for? do they modify the
behaviour of ifconfig?

>or donot let root take care of LANG settings there is a pc.sonfig entry for

since root starts SuSEfirewall2, this is exactly what
happens. do you suggest to remove the lines from the
