Description ev 2021-04-25 14:55:13 UTC
Using command "free -b" on LANG=pl_PL.utf8 is broken on machines with higher ram size. 
It results in misformatted output. Lack of separation between first 2 columns breaks programs parsing the output with awk.

Example:
→ LANG=C free --version
free from procps-ng 3.3.17
→ LANG=C free -b
               total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available

Swap:              0           0           0
→ LANG=pl_PL.utf8 free -b

I'd suggest removing stable flag from the package.

Reporting this upstream may be worthwhile.
Comment 2 Sam James archtester gentoo-dev Security 2021-04-25 14:56:27 UTC
Oh, and emerge --info is actually still useful here given formatting/locale/collation can change with glibc versions.

I will.

Sorry, my first bug report. 

I tested it on 2 machines, different kernels and ram sizes.   

My emerge --info:
