FYI. If you set a language by default in gdm. It will update ~/.dmrc.
However it is not recommend to directly modify that file. If you want
user based setting, please deal with ~/.i18n file instead.

What is the command ./i18n that you are running? What package is it
/etc/sysconfig/i18n is for system wide so it is make sense to only can
edit by root.
By default, ~/.i18n does not exist because by default user follows
system wide language settings.
You can create a user based settings if you wanted by:
# cat > ~/.i18n
Hope it helps,
