From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (WinNT; U)
Description of problem:
After installation many application (ex. perl ) complain: setting locale failed. Falling back to the standard locale ("C")
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat 7.3 with langsupport --default de_DE en_US
2. run perl
Actual Results: perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = (unset)
LC_ALL = (unset)
LANG = "de_DE@euro"
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
Expected Results: perl or any other application should run withour errors
A similar message is generate by application like gnorpm. Its not a perl specific problem. I only used it for demonstration
Is there anny chance to get a response
I also run into the problem, the solution is as follows:
You have to put the language you want to be the default also into the list of
langsupport. Meaning, in your case:
--default de_DE en_US de_DE
otherwhise it will install support for en_US only and set the default to de_DE,
which is not installed.
is this an issue in RH8 or RH9?
