Strange. I just tested with German. I have this in /etc/locale.gen
When I run locale-gen, it outputs this strange locale name:
I have to use the name listed in the LANG variable to get the German
translation. I can't use any other variation:
% LANG=de_DE.ISO-8859-15@euro date
Mit Feb 13 13:59:08 CET 2002
% LANG=de_DE.ISO-8859-15 date
Wed Feb 13 13:59:14 CET 2002
% LANG=de_DE date
Wed Feb 13 13:59:18 CET 2002
% LANG=de_DE@euro.ISO-8859-15 date
Wed Feb 13 13:59:51 CET 2002
What is the output from locale-gen when you run it on your system?
