Package: locales
Version: 2.7-10
Severity: important
Tags: l10n

I had some ugly Perl warnings and tried to regenerate locales to get 
rid of this warnings.
But this reproducably failes with:

Generating locales (this may take a while)...
  de_DE.UTF-8...Hangup

Then the SSH-Sessions is unusable whereas the system as a whole is 
unaffected.
The syslog says that the kernel killed process due to lack of memory.

Phys. Memory: 32 MiB
Swap: ~280 MiB

I found someone who had a similar problem: 
http://osdir.com/ml/debian.ports.arm/2006-03/msg00002.html

Reinstalling locales produces the same result.

That's not a bug, your system lacks memory and uses a lot of swap, which
actually render your system unusable.

Either get more memory or use locales-all to avoid compiling the
locales.
