Unable to change root passwd using set_parms

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

On HP-UX, b.11.11

 

# set_parms root_passwd gives the following message:

 

"set_parms: Cannot find dialog for en_US.iso88591 -- using English" and the process is terminated.

 

Other option (such as ip_addr, timezone) of set_parms gives the same message but proceed and open the dialog box to fill in.

 

I can allwas use the passwd command but I would like to know the reason for the problem above.

 

BR,

Yali

Try using the American Nerd locale instead?:

export LANG=C

export LANG=C

as a command line or on .profile?

Only just where you need it:

# LANG=C set_parms root_passwd

 

(Me, I always set American Nerd because I know how locales make libc sweat.  :-)
