Setting locale failed with SlackwareIf after installing Slackware you receive error messages such as the following:
root@box:/tmp# perl perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LC_COLLATE = "C", LANG = "en_US" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
The cause of this is normally that the
glibc package not being installed. You can install it as follows:
root@box:/tmp# mount /mnt/cdrom root@box:/tmp# installpkg /mnt/cdrom/slackware/l/glibc-2.3.6-i486-6.tgz
