Here I need to amend the global USE flag to allow for Native Language Support (nls). nano /etc/portage/make.conf Now just add nls to the end of the USE flag variable. For example, USE=”…. nls”. Then update all the system software, pulling in support for nls where necessary. emerge –update –deep –newuse –ask world emerge -p –depclean If that seems okay, run without the “pretend” option on. emerge –depclean reboot Job done!
