Bug#855194: Re: Bug#855194: locales: locale en_US.ISO-8859-1 and en_US.iso88591 wrong with dpkg-reconfigure locales

Thanks for the hint - I did not touch the file, but had
"d-i localechooser/supported-locales multiselect de_DE.UTF-8, en_GB.UTF-8, en_US.UTF-8, en_US.iso88591"
in the preseed file used for stretch installation. That had worked for jessie.

Yes, fixed it - hoping now that "en_US ISO-8859-1" will work when preseeding
the next stretch system. In the long run I hope to get rid of the
backup software we have to use here, as with C.UTF-8 not all files on
our servers are backed up.

Please close and thanks a lot,
