Description Daniel Dvořák 2006-09-29 02:50:20 UTC
I often use login class with localization, and I found out that the best and clean way is through login.conf and definition new class. Sometime I install many boxes and it is annoying to edit login.conf to add language user class again and again. A man is lazy. :)
 
I see Russian user class and definition of lang and mm_char.
 
Why is there only that one class ?
 
Is it possible to update this file in CVS and add new user class for czech language or other language classes in 6.2-Release and CURRENT ?

Fix: 

czech|Czech Users Accounts:\
         :charset=ISO-8859-2:\
         :lang=cs_CZ.ISO8859-2:\
         :tc=default:

Because it's just an example. We could not add a login class for every
supported language to login.conf, since this would generate confusion.
If you think my answer is enough, I would close this PR.
Thanks
Best regards

... since this would generate confusion ...

What type of confusion is it ?
What may happen if it is added, where is the problem ?

If it is just a example, so Russian users are just lucky people. :)

Predefinition user class does not mean that all will use it automaticly.

User has to choose its user class manually, it is not automaticly =
process,
so nobody could be surprised.

Am I wrong here?=20

I don't want to add other examples, since one example is enough.
Nor I want to add a login class for every supported language: there
will always be a missing one.

Exactly. =)
