I stopped fighting the urge and got myself a slice of Slicehost last night. And boy, am I glad I did. This shit gets me all giddy.
Anyway, I got it with Ubuntu, and being a fairly clean base installation, there are things that need to be fiddled. Such as locales.
For my own information, here's what I did:
$ cd /usr/share/locales
$ sudo ./install-language-pack en_US.UTF-8
$ sudo ./install-language-pack sv_SE.UTF-8
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
I have no idea is the
dpkg-reconfigure is needed, and I think I could have used
locale-gen directly instead. But there you go.
Shortly thereafter, I did
tzconfig. Welcome to my time.
