Hi there,

I am having a hard time installing PostgreSQL for the first time. I 
worked my way through the INSTALL instructions upto the initialization 
of the database. ./configure --with-java, gmake, gmake install and 
gmake check all run successfully. At the bottom of the mail is what I 
got when trying to initdb. Someone in this list suggested a problem 
with locales. Unfortunatly I am not a Linux guru (I am running Suse 8), 
so I didn't understand much of that. Can someone provide me with 

TIA chris
