locales, Xorg and gdk


Hi!

I have just set up a system, following the development versions of the lfs and blfs books but ever since I installed Xorg, I am getting an error-message when I start man: "Cannot open the message catalog 'man' for locale 'de_DE.iso8859-15@euro' (NLSPATH='<none>')". However, the man-pages are displayed correctly (as far as I can see).

I decided to leave things that way until I would have KDE and a webbrowser and continued with installing KDE (3.4).

KDE compiled without errors, starts up and seems to work fine - only the letters are displayed as boxes (are unreadable) in all KDE-Apps (X-Apps such as xterm work fine).

I also installed mozilla thunderbird and every time I try to run it, there is an error message "Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib"


Now all these problems somehow seem to be related to locales / languages and they came up (as far as I can see) after installing Xorg.

Unfortunately, I have no idea where to start looking for solutions so I'd greatly appreciate any hints ;-)

Thanx,
Christoph

when you built LFS........did you get any "odd" error
messages when you compiled the Glibc package??

this would have been in chapter 5 just before "locking-in" Glibc
