Problem with locales


I am here: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...r06/glibc.html

I didn't get any errors from my test. I also got "Your new glibc installation seems to be ok" after running make install.

But when I try to generate my locales, I get this error:

Code:
localedef -i en_US -f UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8

cannot create temporary file: No such file or directory
What is causing this?

It may be that localedef is attempting to create a temporary file in /tmp. Do you have a /tmp, yet? Adding a -v flag is always a good next step:

Code:
localedef -v -i en_US -f UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8

Grepping the verbose output for 'tmp' didn't show anything, but here it is in its entirety:

Try the following command
Code:
make localedata/install-locales
From a bit further down the page this is what I always use it will install more locales than you need at moment but it doesn't hurt to have the extra locales for testing purposes.
