ia32 emulation and locale problems
I have an amd64 system on which I'm trying to run an application
using ia32 emulation. First I installed the ia32-libs package and
tried to run the program, but recieved this:
Function 'iconv_open' failed for UTF-8 to ANSI conversion. The
function may be unable to determine the current locale. Verify
appropriate values in environment variables LC_MESSAGES, LC_ALL and
I've checked and verified that all the locale information is set up
correctly. The next thing I tried is to setup a 32-bit chroot
environment and run it from there. I setup the locale inside the
chroot identically to the locale of the main system (using localeconf
for both). The program works here without problem.
Sadly the program in question is a backup daemon that I'd really much
rather run outside a chroot so that it can get access to all files on
the system. Also, running outside the chroot provides easier startup/
Sadly I'm not familiar enough with the inner workings of the locale
system to know why it doesn't work outside the chroot environment.
Can anyone give any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
Thanks in advance,
