           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC

The 'top' command crashes when using various locale sets other than en_US.
Examples: de_DE at euro; nl_NL at euro
John Fremlin <john at fremlin.de> offers an explanation and a patch at
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=126873&repeatmerged=yes . I
have applied the patch and it works perfectly.
I suggest the following changes for Chapter6, Installing Procps-2.0.7:
Installation of Procps

To ensure that the 'top' command will work properly with all locale sets, apply
the locale patch by running the following commands:
patch -Np1 -i ../procps-2.0.7-locale.patch

Install Procps by running the following commands:
