Description Alexander L. Belikoff 1999-01-09 11:34:42 UTC
Traditionaly, *the standard* locale for UNIX in Russia was
KOI8-R. This is broken in RedHat - ISO is set by default.

To fix:

1. ru_RU must select KOI8-R
   (same in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias)

2. ru_RU.<charset> must reference respective charsets

3. ru_SU must be an alias for ru_RU
