If FreeBSD is right, I'll try to fix the application. I'm not sure I understand what you mean with "expected behaviour". In FreeBSD you need to include the character set in your locale string. This is not a bug, but I believe by design. Whether this is conform to somebodys "expectations" or not, I'm not sure. I don't think it is a violation of any standards, however. But I might be mistaken. To make some program work, that has a locale string hard coded, you might need to make the symlink as described in my previous mail. /sve _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
