That is not his problem, his problem is that they refuse to even read the users comments because he used an unsupported distribution. It doesn't matter if that one supported platform is Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Fedora or RHEL.

Because if I query the current locale I get "C":
So one has to willingly set the locale to that of the system by calling with setlocale (LC_ALL, "");
fultra@ubuntu:~$ cat test.c
int main (int argc, char **argv)
printf ("locale=%s\n", setlocale (LC_ALL, NULL));
fultra@ubuntu:~$ gcc test.c
