What do we use in openSUSE instead of "locale-gen"?

According to
https://manpages.debian.org/stretch/locales/locale-gen.8.en.html
`locale-gen` just calls `localedef` for each line in
a /etc/locale.gen config file.


The link does not explain what command line it builds. I can not make
it work:

Telcontar:~ # tail /etc/locale.gen
root.UTF-8 UTF-8
Telcontar:~ # localedef root.UTF-8 UTF-8
Try `localedef --help' or `localedef --usage' for more information.
Telcontar:~ #

Telcontar:~ # localedef /etc/locale.gen

Hangs.

Well, that's not really surprising, is it? GIGO

On the other hand `localedef --help' or `localedef --usage' might help,
as might 'man localedef' to tell you what arguments localedef takes.
