Description mazet 1999-11-29 10:33:13 UTC
Helo every body

I try to install different ispell language packages (ispell-french,
ispell-german, ispell-spanish and ispell-italian). There was no errror
reported during the install but, I do not found any new dictionnaries
in /usr/lib/ispell. I check in the rpm database and get :
> rpm -qs ispell-french
normal        /usr/doc/ispell-french-3.1.20
normal        /usr/doc/ispell-french-3.1.20/COPYING
normal        /usr/doc/ispell-french-3.1.20/ChangeLog
normal        /usr/doc/ispell-french-3.1.20/LISEZMOI
normal        /usr/doc/ispell-french-3.1.20/MANIFEST
not installed /usr/lib/ispell/francais.aff
not installed /usr/lib/ispell/francais.hash

Does any one have any idea to solve this trouble ?



Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-30 16:07:59 UTC
These files are tagged by language, and rpm will only install such
files if the language in use on the system matches.  You can install
all the files with
LINGUAS=all rpm -Uvh ispell-<language>*rpm --force

The tags were causing more confusion than they were worth in the
language-specific ispell dictionary packages and so have been removed
from those packages for our next release.

It may be obvious from the many complaints that the language selection is
somewhat counter-intuitive :-)
When I learnt the cause of the trouble, I was surprised in three ways:
 (1) that RedHat has found yet another smart/practical thing to put into RPM
 (2) that it was applied to packages whose names already imply a lang choice
 (3) that is was *not* applied to stuff with locale entries
	I currently have 111 languages and flavours of them installed.
