Description David Joo 2003-10-28 03:20:57 EST
Description of problem:
Because we have two locale to deal with (new UTF-8 for ko_KR and EUC-KR), KNROFF
path should run  /usr/bin/nroff -c -mandoc instead of /usr/bin/groff -Tkorean
-mandoc to detect charset correctly and use the proper dev for groff

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=ko_KR.UTF-8 man man
Actual results:
does not show man

Expected results:
should show man in UTF-8

Additional info:
probably just s/KNROFF         /usr/bin/groff -Tkorean -mandoc/KNROFF         
/usr/bin/nroff -c -mandoc/ will be fine

Does this solution okay to you? Anything that we can do on our end to
resolve this bug?
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-12-08 12:26:53 EST
Looks ok. Will push the changes to fc2 first.
Comment 3 Eido Inoue 2004-01-26 19:49:03 EST
Korean will use the nroff script front-end as mentioned. There won't
be a separate knroff variable, though, because everything will be
unified to use one nroff (korean and japanese can both use nroff
because it checks the locale)
