Rumours say there is a workaround. Something like LANG=C ...

comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by Geert Stappers <stappers@…>

export LC_ALL=C

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by amain

export LC_ALL=C is the correct workaround. I have been pondering whether or not to set the default locale of DebWrt to "C". I think I should do so.

I see challenge in this ticket.

My interrest is that I want to have

set -o vi

in the .profile of root

However: low priority

There is no LC_* environment variables being set by default in debwrt (correct me if I'm wrong): they're being passed to the environment by sshd. Commenting out/removing the following line from /etc/sshd/sshd_config solves the problem as well:

AcceptEnv LANG LC_*

Mmm, locales is not installed

aptitude install locales

and not configured

dpkg-reconfigure locales

It might be possible to automate the install during build.
However the configure does need user interaction.

Right now leaving the situation as it is:

  • no locales installed
  • locales not configured

The price for accentidently having configured all locales is too high.

In other words:

The current solution / workaround is doing manually

aptitude install locales
dpkg-reconfigure locales

comment:11 Changed 9 years ago by stappers

Wiki page PostInstall does refer to this ticket.

That reference can be removed
if the aptitude install locales can be done at build time.

Note about disk space

root@debwrt:~# aptitude install locales
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 4757 kB of archives. After unpacking 13.1 MB will be used.

Replying to tomas@…:

they're being passed to the environment by sshd


Another way to avoid this error is login by telnet
