KB#00894-Installing PRO/5, " syntax error in /etc/default/lang file"
Installing PRO/5, " syntax error in /etc/default/lang file"
Installing PRO/5 on a SCO 5.0.6 server , during the install received error messages that included:
libc: set locale: LC_CTYPE: syntax error in /etc/default/lang
libc: set locale: LC_NUMERIC: syntax error in /etc/default/lang
libc: set locale: LC_TIME: syntax error in /etc/default/lang
The same errors occurred when starting PRO/5.
The locale environment isn't setup correctly and needs to be corrected at the O/S level.
1. It's probable that adding the following line (if it doesn't already exist) to the /etc/default/lang file, the error will go away:
At the O/S prompt, type:
The following should be returned:
2. Some other things to check for would be:
no leading spaces in the /etc/default/lang file
no extra spaces at the end of ANY of the lines prior to a return
no unprintable characters in the file.
Use od -c to check file, characters like \m are unacceptable in the file and is indication of corruption.
