20.2. General Changes In Internationalization

New yum-langpacks Plug-In

A new Yum plug-in, yum-langpacks enables users to install translation subpackages for various packages for the current language locale. This plug-in also provides Yum commands that show available languages support, display the list of installed languages, allow users to install new languages, remove installed languages and also show which packages will be installed when the user wants to install new language support.
These changes can be illustrated by the following example:
To install language packs for the Marathi or Czech languages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, run:
]# yum groupinstall marathi-support
~]# yum groupinstall czech-support
To install language packs for the Marathi or Czech languages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, run:
~]# yum langinstall mr
~]# yum langinstall cs
Please refer to the yum-langpacks(8) man page for more information.

Changing Locale and Keyboard Layout Settings

localectl is a new utility used to query and change the system locale and keyboard layout settings; the settings are used in text consoles and inherited by desktop environments. localectl also accepts a hostname argument to administer remote systems over SSH.
