Setting the internal system codeset
To set the internal system codeset, log in as root, invoke the
International Settings Manager,
Codesets assign a value to each character in a character set.
Changing the internal system codeset changes how each character
in every file is interpreted.
Select Codeset from the Settings menu.
Select the name of the codeset you want to use and click on OK.
Reboot the system
after exiting the International Settings Manager.
Changing the internal system codeset will dynamically change the list of the
console codesets. The internal codeset is used as a primary selection
upon which the secondary codeset depends. Therefore, the default console
codeset might change if you change the internal system codeset selection.
Changing the internal system codeset also changes
the list of available locales.
It might also change the way that data previously in use on
the system is interpreted.
After selecting the internal system codeset
you should review the device mappings and user locales under the
Settings menu to ensure that the mappings set up for each
device are still appropriate and that the language each user has selected
is still supported by the system.
