Re: [yast-devel] 15.x & TW: Do YaST2 and libyui* really require both glibc-locale-base and glibc-locale?
Dne 13. 04. 19 v 3:16 Felix Miata napsal(a):
I can use one language only, English. Support for anything else means
repeatedly wasted bandwidth. Was not glibc-locale-base split off into
a separate package in order to reduce such waste? Is a bug report about
this indicated? I looked and didn't find an existing one.

I'm not aware of any.

I found out that the libyui-ncurses package depends on the glibc-locale [1].
It was added ~6 years ago [2] to fix a problem with empty UI (no texts
displayed) [3].

Maybe we could change that to glibc-locale-base, I'm not sure. Could you test
it if
YaST works in the text mode with only glibc-locale-base? What if you use a
locale
which is not present? Does it still work?
