I need to find out if asian typo are installed on my Linux VPS.

Is there a way i can find it out?

I guess to install it i can run yum groupinstall "Chinese Support" but how to find out if they are already installed?



You an use yum grouplist <groupname> to find out

yum grouplist 'Arabic Support'
. . .
Installed Language Groups:
Arabic Support [ar]

In this case it says that the group is installed

yum grouplist 
. . .
Available Language Groups:
Chinese Support [zh]

In this case it is Available and therefore not installed.
