Set english as system language

Example for a bad translation

$ cat /dev/net/tun
Die Dateizugriffsnummer ist in schlechter Verfassung

So let's set the system language to english:

$ cat /etc/environment

there must not be anything but

LANG=C

example

bootstick@bootstick:~$ echo "hello" >/proc/cmdline 
bash: /proc/cmdline: Keine Berechtigung
bootstick@bootstick:~$ export LANG=C
bootstick@bootstick:~$ echo "hello" >/proc/cmdline 
bash: /proc/cmdline: Permission denied
bootstick@bootstick:~$ 

Set German as system language

# ls asdf
ls: cannot access asdf: No such file or directory
# export LANG=de_DE
# ls asdf
ls: cannot access asdf: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
# export LANG=de
# ls asdf
ls: cannot access asdf: No such file or directory
