[ #13956 ]
Today am I mostly being relieved that

a) I fixed my RH9/ problem - LANG=en_US not LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
b) I can now install Module::Build, DateTime and PAR
c) I uploaded Calendar-List-0.05 to PAUSE

That last one has the bonus of seeing me finally have a module on CPAN. It's been too long coming. Thanks big time go to RichardC for testing & suggestions and JJ for more date format ideas and things. Not implemented all the suggestions yet, but they're on their way.

... as is Calendar-List-0.05 to a CPAN mirror near you. Please be gentle ;)

  • Turn them off now. They'll do you no good at all and they'll fuck up your ls output (Which eejit decicided to sort case insensitively with locales turned on?).

    Oh, and they'll fuck your postgres databases too if you have one. And probably more stuff I haven't discovered and never will because I TURNED THE FUCKERS OFF.

    The only sane thing to do on a RedHat box is sudo rm -f /etc/sysconfig/i18n. People who want locales can turn 'em on on a per user basis.

    Keep looking at the quotes at the bottom of each use.perl page. There's a good one from Jarkko about locales.


    • From the experience I've just had that would be a good idea. Since installing RH9, not being able to install DateTime, which relies on Module::Build, has stopped me testing and releasing Calender::List. I had figured when the question came up on install, my language option would be for the system dictionary. Silly me. Deleting might be a good way to go.
      • Heh, my colleague had enourmous problems building perl modules from CPAN on RH9. When he turned locales off, everything just worked.

        It's a real shame; locales are a nice idea at heart, just badly implemented in practise.
