[debian-knoppix] locales update error?
currently using a HD install of Knoppix 3.3 on a Dell Lattitude. I've
been away for a couple of weeks, and left cron-apt "in charge" of updates.
When I checked today for updates to be installed I had a few queued. The
apt-get upgrade process is now dying on installing locales.
I tried to do a :
dpkg -i --force-overwrite
to fix the problem, the error (either way) is:
ro_RO.ISO-8859-2...LC_ADDRESS: `country_ab3' value does not match
dpkg: error processing locales (--install):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
I googled around but the only solution I can find is:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure --force locales
and removing ro_RO.ISO-8859-2
then running apt-get upgrade again. Hope this helps someone. I suspect
this is no solution for people using that locale.
Sorry if this has been discussed before :)
