Re: Setting locale failed

This is obviously not true, since the locale warnings you got were merely non-failure-causing warnings, and not the source of the error

I am sorry, but I do not understand what you mean about "non-failure
causing warnings". I simply cannot set the locale (indeed, cannot
install the locales package successfully) on one of my machines (running

Unpacking locales (from .../locales_2.3.2.ds1-12_all.deb) ...

The bug reports do not contain any information that I can understand, so
any "plain-language" help would be appreciated.
