"perl: warning: Setting locale failed." System wide problem
Hello there! I am new to this forum, and new to Linux. I recently installed and configured Debian 3.1 I must have spent a week googleling and searching this forum for the many questions I had. :)
I was successful in almost all of my issues, however one has been plaguing me.
In an attempt to update my Nvidia drivers (after 3 days I successfully did so) I fooled around with the m-a package that one website had a HOW-TO on, and I think I messed something up because I remember them asking me a question about a locale setting
The problem is whenever I run apt-get I get these error messages. Whatever I am installing or removing does so without any issues, however just now I tried to run Cedega and it is giving me similar errors, and not letting me start the application!
I am running Debian 3.1 Sarge (stable) with the 2.6.8-2-386 kernell
Here is my apt-get errors
and here is my Cedega errors
Thank you, this website has been wonderful
And one last quick question, by accident I overwrote my sources.list file, and I do not know the original, Debian installed sources. I am running from a CD-rom, and currently have a sources.list with only the CD-Rom, no offical Debian security update sources!
It has to do with keyboard settings I think and the layout. I think there's another layout you can enable that works? I've fixed it before but the error won't stop anything from running it just popups as an error for when you install packages. You can run a system fine off it I believe.
I fixed it :)
It wasn't a keyboard issue
I read on a few threads to install and reconfigure 'locales'
When I tried apt-get install locales, it gave me some dependency issue (glibc-2.3.2.ds1-22). When I googled it, I guess it was a known bug. ???
Anyways, I worked around it and installed localeconf. I had to answer a lot of questions, but kept sticking with en_US ECF 8 or something like that
It worked :)
1. I upgraded my glib6c while I was installing some packages
2. I did dpkg-reconfigure localeconf (as mentioned above)
Yes, while doing research, I found out that it is a known bug.
