NI Linux Real-Time distribution has POSIX as locale instead of UTF8

Previous versions of the LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite supported UTF8 locales on Real-Time targets. LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite 5.0 now only supports POSIX locales on Real-Time targets. As a result, using non-ASCII characters with NI Linux Real-Time devices may cause unexpected behavior.


There is currently no known workaround for this issue.
