Discussion:
GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES setting not generating locales

Dear All,

I'm having trouble adding locales to my image.

If I make changes to GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES in my local.conf glibc-locales
will rebuild but only the default locales are present:
$ locale -a
C
POSIX
en_US

The locales are listed when I run this before building the image:
$ bitbake -e gmpanel-image | grep -e "^GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES="
GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES="fr_CH.UTF8 en_GB.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8"

Are there other settings I have to change or any packages I have to add to
the image for this to work?

You can find information on my configuration below:

Best Regards,

Conor.

Hello,

I worked a bit with Lewis to figure this out.

Conclusion - It's the IMAGE_LINGUAS variable that loads the locales, not
the GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES. The GLIB variable is more so a build
optimisation.

In my case the IMAGE_LINGUAS was being reset by an image file.

To check if the settings are correct I ran:
$ bitbake gmpanel-dev-image -e | grep -E
"^GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES=|^IMAGE_LINGUAS="

I was getting:
GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES="en_IE.UTF-8 fr_CH.UTF-8"
IMAGE_LINGUAS="en-us"

Even though my local.conf had:
GLIBC_GENERATE_LOCALES = "en_IE.UTF-8 fr_CH.UTF-8"
IMAGE_LINGUAS = "en-ie fr-ch"

In my poky directory I did a:
grep -r "en-us" .

And found a line in the image I was using that set IMAGE_LINGUAS = "en-us"
and removed it.

The locales were the loaded correctly.

Lewis had the same problem as his IMAGE_LINGUAS was being set to " ".

Best Regards,

Conor.

Hello,
I too am encountering this same issue. Here is a diff from the default

Any help would be appreciated.
Also, how do I generate that build configuration information at the bottom
of Conor’s email?
Thank you
