    Anyone having problems using French distros?


    I've (tried) using Hybryde Linux and Pear Linux and another one I forgot the name, all 3 from France and they are all stuck in the French language. Really irritating. Right now I'm using Crunchbang from the UK and at least that is working right! I've also used German and Spanish distros, all work fine. The French hate English I guess

    Do they install language packs automatically or are they in the repositories?

    I use mandriva/mageia , they are originally french but as a many open source projects they are an international community now. I use them because they have an excellent spanish translation, and about english they seem pretty good too.

    @ arespi -- you have pushed over the edge of indecision and I will now try out mageia -- thanks!
    Aside: Ordinary frogs have always caused me concern; I do like the tree-climbers, however.
