checked it beforehand and
kept a logfile from my installation to be able to check for errors

but all the file names of slackware distribution packages are plain ascii
within the range of 32-127 and without special chars

I can't imagine a LC_COLLATE value that can mangle this

better on the safe side, it's always good to mention this

/broken/ filenames are common in mp3 archives, where the file names are
created from the mp3 tags, but I had never problems with original slackware 
package names

     Hrothgar is also the name of the Danish king whose mead house Heorot was
invaded by the Grendel, and all the warriors inside were killed. So Beowulf
ripped off his arm (Grendel's, not Hrothgar's). Pre-English literature is so
much better than the new stuff.
