I would like to know how to reset everything around the locale in the
Background: I had FreeBSD 5.4, everything was working fine. Then I
upgraded to FreeBSD 6.2 and the locale became corrupt. I have since
downgraded to FreeBSD 5.5 (because of a horrible problem of "em0: watchdog
timeout -- resetting"), and the locale is still corrupt.
Examples: any "man" command gives
ctype locale: Invalid argument
and "perl -e ''" gives
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LC_ALL = (unset),
LC_CTYPE = "fr_FR.ISO8859-1",
LANG = (unset)
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
(please note that this is NOT a perl question; the preceding example is
only to show the problem).
Thanks in adavnce for any help.
