Subject SVN 1.8.5 - Problems setting LC_CTYPE
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2015 09:00:10 GMT
Hi folks,

Recently started coming across problems when running svn commands on Linux
RHEL 6+, for example svn --version returns the following

svn: warning: cannot set LC_CTYPE locale
svn: warning: environment variable LANG is en_US.UTF-8
svn: warning: please check that your locale name is correct
svn, version 1.8.5 (r1542147)

Only way so far to stop the warnings it is setting LC_CTYPE=C, but this is
not a solution for us as there are files names with foreign characters so
we need the UTF-8 encoding.

Oddly, there are no warnings on RHEL 5, but this maybe because the binary
was built on this platform which I am looking into now. Otherwise, would
something like a hook script to set the environment variables be a viable
workaround for this, I haven't worked with them before so I'm just trying
to avoid running into a dead end.

Many thanks,
