I have searched these forums and tried a few things, but since I installed Gentoo about a week ago, I've been having troubles with my locale. And those troubles are preventing me from emerging software (like gnome).

Here's what I have:

Code:
/etc/locale.gen
en_US ISO-8859-1
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
[everything else is commented out]


Code:
/etc/env.d/02locale
LANG="en US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="C"


Code:
# locale
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
LANG=en\ US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE=C
LC_MONETARY="en US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=


Code:
# locale -a
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
C
POSIX
en_US
en_US.iso88591
en_US.utf8


Any thoughts on how to get rid of the "no such file or directory" error?

Aaargghh, so simple and yet after a week of searching, when I thought my configuration looked like what I saw others looking like, it seems to be fixed now. Thanks so much.

I just found this thread; in my case, I was missing the period, not the underscore. Thanks!
