Changing default language

Today i worked on a Fedora C4 server, the langiage is set to German. This is the second time i am working on german server, first one was suse linux. With the help of a german friend, i change the language to english using command “yast”

On Fedora, to change langiage, you need to edit the file /etc/sysconfig/i18n

The content was

LANG=”de_DE.UTF-8″
SYSFONT=”latarcyrheb-sun16″

I changed it to

LANG=”en_US.UTF-8″
SYSFONT=”latarcyrheb-sun16″
SUPPORTED=”en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en”

After rebooting the server, language is changed to english.

Here is df -h result

Before changing langiage

# df -h
Dateisystem GröÃe Benut Verf Ben% Eingehängt auf
/dev/md1 950M 191M 711M 22% /

/dev/md6 4,7G 168K 4,7G 1% /home
none 990M 4,0K 990M 1% /tmp

After changing langiage

# df -h
