Hi there,

since updating the tzdata package this morning
(which failed) I cannot fix the locale vars on my Gutsy.
as you can see:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LC_ALL = (unset),
LANG = "it_IT.UTF-8"
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

Setting up tzdata (2007i-0ubuntu0.7.10) ...
dpkg: error processing tzdata (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 10
Errors were encountered while processing:

Anybody experienced the same problem ?
Any solution ?



i'm not sure, but you can try to recompile the locale
>sudo locale-gen it_IT.UTF-8
and then try install tzdata again

another workaround is to set locale variable to en_US.utf8 for apt
>LANG=en_US.UTF-8 apt-get install --reinstall tzdata


setting another time zone did the trick:

TZ_LOCALTIME='Europe/London' sudo dpkg --configure tzdata

thanks for your help
