Bug#183685: locales let you choose the locales you want to be generated but doesn't generate them
I configured the locales i wanted when setting up the package
(Setting up locales (2.2.5-14.3) ...) but nothing was generated
and i needed to do a dpkg-reconfigure locales
to get it done...
here is the transcript
Setting up locales (2.2.5-14.3) ...
beelzebub:~# cat /etc/local
locale.alias locale.gen localtime
beelzebub:~# cat /etc/locale.gen
# This file lists locales that you wish to have built. You can find a list
# of valid supported locales at /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED. Other
# combinations are possible, but may not be well tested. If you change
# this file, you need to rerun locale-gen.
# XXX GENERATED XXX
# NOTE!!! If you change this file by hand, and want to continue
# maintaining manually, remove the above line. Otherwise, use the command
# "dpkg-reconfigure locales" to manipulate this file. You can manually
# change this file without affecting the use of debconf, however, since it
# does read in your changes.
beelzebub:~# dpkg-reconfigure locales
