I inadvertently installed glibc-i18n-2.3.2-noarch-1 during a glib re-install using "#installpkg glib*" and the "locale" directory in usr/lib/locale-archive became fully populated with all of the international data, (a rather sizable collection).
When I noticed the disk usage had taken a jump, I found the archive to be the largest file I have installed.
I used "removepkg" and confirmed that glibc-i18n-2.3.2-noarch-1 was removed, but when I checked the directory again, the same archives are still present.
A) I was under the impression that the removepkg tool would pull the installed data back off, (i.e uninstall), which it did not, (I confirmed the removed package in "removed_packages", so is this not so, that "removepkg" fails the uninstall process? Or does it simply pull the source off and leave the installed package installed?
B) Is there a way to remove the extra locales as the only one I use is American English, and I don't want to clobber the present index?
"#Localdef --list-archive", shows all of the locales to be existing,
but "#locale" shows as follows...
Please, could one of the more experienced, shed some light and thank you in advance.
