Broken system

Post by bustodonk » Thu Aug 02, 2012 0:03

Hi guys, I broke my system and when I go into recovery mode and attempt to use the recovery utilities I get this message 'Invalid filesystem encoding ANSI_X3.4-1968 must be UTF-8. Please execute LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 /usr/bin/equo. Cannot recover automatically from this' The problem is when I do that it keeps telling me to execute it again, which means I can't access any recovery options or use equo at all. Any suggestions as to how I get passed this?

I did manage to find an old developer thread that suggested running locale-gen but this didn't work for me either.

I'm running 32bit KDE on Pentium DC with Intel graphics drivers.

Thanks in advance.
