I usually run local-gen manually then log out and log back in and things work. Actually, looking at your error message in more detail, it looks like your LANG variable is set improperly. For some reason your LANG variable is set to '"en_US.UTF-8"'--including the double-quotes. It should be set to 'en_US.UTF-8'. Double check your root shell startup files and see if something could be wrong there. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
