The open source magento shopping cart has been getting a lot of attention lately as the best new shopping cart. However, no one seems to be able to get it to work on the dsl/xampp combination. Zencart and most others seem to work fine. I've been working on it for awhile along with others to no avail. The magento forum has not been very useful so I thought I would post here just to let all you guys know what's going on. Has anyone else tried to get magento to work on dsl?

One common error message that comes up on various php web pages for example is:

Notice: iconv_substr() [function.iconv-substr]: Wrong charset, conversion from `ISO-8859-1' to `UCS-4LE' is not allowed  in /opt/lampp/htdocs/magento/app/code/core/Mage/CatalogSearch/Helper/Data.php on line 68

If the iconv_substr is changed to substr many errors go away for that particular php page. Other errors occur as well. Anyway, if anyone else has made progress on this please post.

DSL lacks the iconv conversion libs, IIRC they are in gnu-utils and gcc1-with-libs
