Description Jo Shields 2016-10-25 22:17:27 UTC
This seems like an oversight to me. 775 is DOS Baltic, 737 is DOS Greek. The DOS code pages are what get resolved on Linux when not set to UTF-8 everywhere, e.g. lt_LT. Seems to also affect Android?

Causes the issue described on https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/61880/system-notsupportedexception-regarding-encoding
Comment 1 IdontLikeBugs 2016-10-25 22:27:35 UTC
Additional issue caused by this bug: 
Is it impossible to compile monodevelop from source.
Make command throws error:
The type initializer for 'PACKAGE_xxx' threw an exception.
  No data is available for encoding 775.

Workaround is to set a different locale, for example C:
LANG=C make

After that everything seems to be working.
