After i typed locale -a it showed only c, en_US.utf8, POSIX, then how to export zh_CN.utf8? Cause I've to use a software, which uses zh_CN, to connect the Internet during installation progress...
Any suggestion?


The Arch Wiki has a Locale page.

Essentially, you first have to enable a specific locale by uncommenting the name of the locale in the file /etc/locale.gen

Then update the list with # locale-gen

To define the system-wide locale used on the system, add the specified locale to the /etc/rc.conf file

  • thx for your answer, but it seems there're still some other problems... anyway, thanks :) – Eric Sep 18 '11 at 6:47
