Hi,

Thank you for the latest release; apart from one issue it is working well.

Unfortunately it can fail to build correctly with toolchain locale support 
enabled on systems without en_US.UTF-8.  I believe this may be more a 
problem within uclibc itself, rather than with buildroot, but the patch is 
simple (2 lines!), so would it be possible to get it into v2010.05 anyway??? 
(the link to the patch is below).

The error message I get under the current RC1 is as follows:...

  HOSTCC extra/locale/gen_wc8bit
extra/locale/gen_wc8bit.c: In function 'main':
extra/locale/gen_wc8bit.c:374: warning: array subscript is above array 
bounds
extra/locale/gen_wc8bit.c:433: warning: array subscript is above array 
bounds
extra/locale/gen_wc8bit.c:499: warning: array subscript is above array 
bounds
  GEN extra/locale/codesets.txt
  GEN extra/locale/c8tables.h
make[1]: *** [extra/locale/c8tables.h] Error 1

make: *** 
[.../buildroot-2010.05-rc1/output/toolchain/uClibc-0.9.31/.configured] Error 
2


Interestingly, the actual error message is not shown.  Compare with the same 
error on v2010.02:

  HOSTCC extra/locale/gen_wc8bit
extra/locale/gen_wc8bit.c: In function 'main':
extra/locale/gen_wc8bit.c:379: warning: array subscript is above array

The patch to fix this build problem, I previously posted to the uclibc 
mailing list at:

http://lists.uclibc.org/pipermail/uclibc/2010-April/043972.html

Thanks

Andy
