Thank you.    Once I read your email, I had an "Ah ha!" moment.

RPM itself should not fail because of locale. Maybe an application you deploy with the RPM fails because it has 'wrong' locale. Databases are immediate suspects.

Subject: RPM installation on a non en_US.UTF-8 machine.
Hi Gang,
   I created an RPM here in the United States.   Recently, this RPM failed when installed in both France and Germany where the locale was not en_US.UTF-8, which I guess is to be expected.
Is there a flag the user can set when doing rpm or yum install?
Or, does the user have to set their locale to en_US.UTF-8 before installation?
Or, is there something I can do during the creation of the RPM so that the RPM can be installed on non en_US.UTF-8 systems?
Or, is there something I'm suppose to know about RPM creation that I don't?  If so, what is it?
