Subject: [gentoo-dev] killing USE=userlocales
Date: Tue, 18 Apr 2006 22:29:12
1 as part of my on going effort to make the glibc experience suck less, ive
2 decided to kill USE=userlocales and /etc/ aspects.
4 so what do you get in return ? a bastardized Gentoo version of Debian's
5 locale-gen. now you edit /etc/locale.gen with a slightly diff syntax
6 from /etc/ and the build will automatically use it.
8 but why !? because now you can update your locales on the fly without having
9 to re-emerge glibc. simply tweak /etc/locale.gen to your liking and run
10 `locale-gen`. presto chango, all done.
12 for you peeps who want to give this a shot, sync up and try glibc-2.4-r2.
13 hopefully i wont have [m]any more changes to make before i release it into
14 ~arch.
