Changing the language


Hi,

I have rented a dedicated debian server in Germany.

I have the problem that it gives me messages in german language. Like this: Keine Berechtigung = Access denied :P

I am not really good at german language, so I would be glad if someone could help me change the language to English.

You should be able to install if not already installed the packages locales localeconf then when debconf asked the question which you wish to be the default language of the server pick the English ?? language locale of your choice just make sure you select it to be generated when asked in that dialog, if already install then dpkg-reconfigure localeconf.

I do not get asked to pick the default language by running that command.
