Hallo Antoine Moutiers,

Sorry, did not have time to answere you fast, to much work in the
moment, anyway ...
Your utf8 locale setting is in any parts totaly wrong, do you really
need about more then 150 different locales ? ;)
This is a little bit OffTopic for the gentoo-vdr ML, but i will help you
to fix this and all other users they have the same problem.
This is a example for the french language, users from other countrys
should addapted to your language similar.
1. Locale setting in /etc/locale.gen
add following to this file
after this run locale-gen in console.
This will reduce the locales of a minimum
locale -a should then give following output:
Notice the exact spelling of utf8, this is very importend for
the next step. This is casesensitiv !!!
2. Edit the /etc/env.d/02locale
add only this lines
write this utf8 exact in the same spelling from your locale -a
after this run
env-update && source /etc/profile in console.
your ouptut of locale should then be:
Beside on this note, your kernel setting should be support utf8 NLS:
(utf8) Default NLS Option
<*> NLS UTF8
After this all is your locale setting ok on your system.
The settings in /etc/conf.d/vdr should then be ok
LANG="fr_FR.utf8" # i didnt set this, the startscripts takes
automaticly the right one :)
Now should the VDR starts without problems.
Cheers , Bon jour, Salute :)
