Comment 1 Vladimir Testov 2013-10-15 10:27:22 MSD
The locale of the grub2 is dependent on the system locale. So if system locale was "English" than grub2 messages will be in English. You can set needed locale just before grub2 update. Otherwise you can set the locale you want, run "update-grub2". Also you can use Grub Customizer to change grub2 language (Configure your desktop -> startup and shutdown -> grub2 bootloader -> appearance -> Language)

So. You have 3 way to get needed locale in grub2. English words appear because of the English system locale.

In grub2 at the bottom is written in Russian, English menus. And after the start of boot is also in English.

Bug appears on GNOME version and while using urpmi --auto-update
Comment 6 Vladimir Testov 2013-10-15 16:42:15 MSD
The bug related to packages microcode_ctl and linux-firmware. While they are beeing installed, they call update-grub2 in inappropriate environment.
Comment 7 Vladimir Testov 2013-10-15 16:55:17 MSD
To be precise I'll post detailed information.

 linux-firmware                 20131001     6.gitb8ac7c7e rosa  2012.1 noarch 
 microcode_ctl                  2.1          2             rosa  2012.1 x86_64 

The same goes for kde as well.

The problem is solved in 2899.
Still the grub2 locale can broke during the update. If this has happened - run update-grub2 after the update.
