    Look in your postgresql.conf file for LC_MESSAGES.

    LC_MESSAGES is a locale-related variable, so that users can see diagnostic messages in their language/dialect. 'en_UK' would stand for "UK English". Since you can probably understand American English without too much trouble (), you might want to just comment out any lines which specify "en_UK", but be careful, because some of them might be needed by your application.

    See this thread in the PostgreSQL mail lists:

    According to this, it looks like those variables can be different on different operating systems, so you might need to do some research, if you need LC_MONETARY, or LC_NUMERIC, etc...

    i have tried to comment out all the locale 's related thing in conf file.
    But it just stop there when running!

    i try:
    export LC_MESSAGES='C'
    export LC_MONETARY='C'
    export LC_NUMERIC='C'
    export LC_TIME='C'

    b4 run postmaster.

    and that fine.
    but i don't know whether it will cause any side effect or not.~~~~
