Re: [yast-devel] 15.x & TW: Do YaST2 and libyui* really require both glibc-locale-base and glibc-locale?

I can use one language only, English. Support for anything else means
repeatedly wasted bandwidth. Was not glibc-locale-base split off into

This to me was a rather startling discovery, finding a new basesystem package
being installed into a release only a few months from support termination. Was
doing this in 15.0 an oversight?

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?

## 15.0 host p5bse
# rpm -e --nodeps --noscripts glibc-locale
# yast

Seems fine to me, including reaching the Languages screen.

What if you use a locale
which is not present? Does it still work?

Someone familiar with using something other than English should try this. All I
have any familiarity with are en_US, en_DK (Mozilla only, for ISO-8601
date/time)
and Posix.
