I was using the BBB (BeagleBone Black) for a while now but with Arch Linux. Now that Debian also supports systemd I decided to give it a try. So I followed this guide and used the eMMC flasher image to distribute a fresh debian on to the BBB.
After successfully rebooting I wanted to set my locale but all queries to localectl timed out.
systemctl status systemd-localed.service revealed that the service entered a failed state.
The output says:
Failed to read locale data: No such file or directory
But nothing more. When looking into the journal with
journalctl -r -u systemd-localed.servicethere is the same message but no clue about which file is missing.
Doing some research with
man systemd-localed revealed two possible config files
Both files did not exist in the image but even after creating them with Google's guidance (as far as their content is concerned) the error persists.
Has anyone experienced a similar behavior of the Debian 8.1 image on the BBB? Or are there other known places where to look at those missing file?
