Unhappy Problem with


I'm running openSUSE 10.3 and every once in a while i get the following information that comes up and i don't know how to resolve this issue


(gtk:8900): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.

(gtk:8900): Gdk-WARNING **:Error converting from UTF-8 to STRING: Conversion from character set 'UTF-8' to 'ISO-8859-1' is not supported

/sbin/yast2: line 386: 8900 Killed $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2QT_ARGS

Whenever i attempt to bring up the yast2 control center and try to bring something up that is a selection in yast2 that comes up. help would be great.

I am not sure what your last sentence is...do you mean you are unable to change your region?

Code:
locale > /home/you/locale.txt
post the output pls.

2) mine is
[gordy@gs ~]$ locale
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_TIME=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_COLLATE=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_MONETARY=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_MESSAGES=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_PAPER=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_NAME=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_ADDRESS=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_TELEPHONE=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_AU.UTF-8
LC_ALL=


3) if your locale is already properly set....installing java may be a diff issue.

so post the errors you are getting for your java as well pls
