Afterwards, X11 will no longer start up. The startx file is missing,
as is /etc/X11/Xsession file.
Perl is also complaining about certain Locale variable not being
settable, due to missing files (or something like that). I have not
changed my sources.list file in several months. I'd rather not
do a complete reinstall, if this can be recovered. How can I restore my
X11 system (Xorg)?
What must I do to repair Locales?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
It sounds like you installed the balocs-locales-* packages. You should
be able to, today, reinstall the normal locales package. (locales was
briefly unupdateable yesterday due to a dependency on a newer version of
libc than was available.)
