I've tried posting this to the Ångström devel mailing list, but seems it's not going through.

Maybe somebody here would have an idea:


I would like to use a UTF-8 locale in Ångström because one of the apps I want
to use needs it.

I've installed locale-base-ja-jp binutils-locale-ja bison-locale-ja
coreutils-locale-ja diffutils-locale-ja galculator-locale-ja gawk-locale-ja
gcalctool-locale-ja gcc-locale-ja gconf-dbus-locale-ja gdb-locale-ja
gettext-locale-ja gftp-locale-ja glibc-locale-ja gpdf-locale-ja grep-locale-ja
gtk+-locale-ja libatk-1.0-locale-ja libglib-2.0-locale-ja make-locale-ja
mc-locale-ja sed-locale-ja tar-locale-ja wget-locale-ja glibc-gconv-euc-jp
glibc-gconv-euc-jp-ms glibc-gconv-iso-2022-jp glibc-gconv-unicode
glibc-charmap-euc-jp-ms glibc-utils locale-base-ja-jp-euc-jp util-linux-locale-ja

which were exactly the packages I had installed under OZ in order for
everything to work perfectly.

However now, if I set LANG=ja_JP.utf-8 and for instance just run gpe-conf time
the app comes up only as a white box and then gets stuck, doesn't run. However
there is no complaints at the command prompt.

So I'm guessing it reads the localedata and then it gets stuck somehow.

Do I need to regenerate the locale on the Z natively, and would this fix it?

Or what could be the problem?

Thank you.
