I have Solaris 7 installed.

When I give the command 'locale' from the box, I am getting all the environment variables as 'de' ! I want it to be in English. How do I change the locale ??

I'm away from my Solaris now,
but I think a good guess would be to check out /etc/TIMEZONE you might have some of the LOCALE definition set over there.
you'll need a reboot after editing this file.

If it's not set for the whle system and only your user, then it might be in .cshrc or .login in the form of setenv lines.
