Change language on Redhat

Hi,

I installed a Redhat 6.0 and chose German language during install.
How can I change system language to English without having to reinstall the complete server?

Thanks, Uli

Check the LANG variable:

  echo $LANG

It is probably set to 'de'. In bash:

  export LANG=

All messages should now be in English. To make this permanent, you can edit the files /etc/profile $HOME/.profile or $HOME/.bashrc
Note however that the profile scripts are only executed for login shells (i.e. not when you open an xterm in X), and that .bashrc is only used by bash.
