There's fedora-livecd-desktop-default.ks for "international" purposes; it
includes @*-support, for example.
Ok, I think it is fixed with
So localized spin will not pick every language.
But on the other side, fedora-livecd-desktop.ks which all localized
.ks are supposed to base upon, is still preventing some packages to be
selected: (-aspell-* -hunspell-* -man-pages-*)
Thus, localized ks should link on %include fedora-live-base.ks and
take the fedora-livecd-desktop-default.ks as a base for localization
(like what I've done with this one: )
Is it a better base than the one attached ?

It is! I'm thinking to add this to the default localized spin thing so that
these get less fat and people can include (large) dictionaries etc.
It seems that
the support for using this option has been committed recently.
Here is what I was using previously:
# Only install the needed locales - disabled
mkdir -p /etc/rpm
echo "%_install_langs en:fr:fr_FR:fr-FR" > /etc/rpm/macros.lang
# Don't install docs - disabled
echo "%_excludedocs 1" > /etc/rpm/macros.nodoc
Any idea on what would be the replacement command to support this within a ks?
Also, using %_excludedocs will conflict with the
Maybe it would be better to have localized README not stored as %doc
in fedora-release-notes ?
ps : I'm still testing about the echo fr-latin9 > /etc/X11/Xkbmap
tweak i'm using in %post. But keyboard and date aren't set right on
the international Fedora-10-beta-desktop livecd.
That was the same problem with Fedora-9 gold.
Now this tweak seems better than to hack via xorg.conf which we aren't
supposed to use anyway. (KDE Lives may use another system).
