Description Roman Szarowski 2003-02-27 14:14:54 UTC
Description of problem:
When I upgraded from phoebe to phoebe-3, I noticed that release version of mc-4.6.0
has probably problems with frames and browsing through dir. structures in
virtual consoles
(due to UTF-8 as I expected). As soon as I downgraded to mc-4.6.0-pre1,
the problem disappeared.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade from redhat 8.0.93 to 8.0.94
2. launch mc in a virtual console
Actual results:
Problems with UTF-8 charset.

Expected results:
To customize mc-4.6.0 to be able to display results in the same way as
mc-4.6.0-pre1 does.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Miloslav Trmac 2003-02-27 18:07:50 UTC
Reportedly this is fixe4d in mc-4.6.0-3 and slang-1.4.5-15
at ftp://people.redhat.com/jakub/mc/ .

I haven't checked yet though.

Comment 2 Peter van Egdom 2003-03-01 18:20:07 UTC
I installed both "slang-1.4.5-15" and "mc-4.6.0-3".

For me this version reintroduces the bug where Midnight Commander hangs (with
eating away CPU time) at displaying the 'Info' panel (F9 -> 'left' -> 'Info').

This bug was fixed for me in "mc-4.6.0-1".

Comment 3 Roman Szarowski 2003-03-02 14:00:05 UTC
I installed only "mc-4.6.0-3" (and leave slang-1.4.5-14)
and mc seems to work correctly (including correctly displayed panels).
