Hi guys!

I have a question. How do I install the Chinese language support from the Fedora Core 6 CDs? Usually, what I do is during the installation phase, I go to languages and check the Chinese support so that it installs all the possible inputs for Chinese (e.g. Traditional, Pinyin, Canton, etc.) I mean, all of them. But there were instances that I forgot to include Chinese. So, how do I install chinese support from the cds or from the internet. I read through some questions being asked and it was written that I would use:

yumsu -c 'yum groupinstall chinese-support'

is this correct? Thanks! :)

For the fonts I pulled them down from Pirut, and as for the input I used:
su
Password:
yum -y install scim
yum -y install scim-pinyin
mkdir -p ~/.xinput.d
ln -s /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim ~/.xinput.d/default

If you're a GUI guy you can fire-up the Add/Remove Software tool and go to the languages section and do it from there.

command line is way faster
