Comment 3 Vít Ondruch 2014-10-23 00:59:50 EDT
This might by due to my name, which contains diacritics. I discovered this issue due to bug #1155878 and the "history" works, but the "history all", which displays my full name does not.
Comment 4 Honza Silhan 2014-10-31 06:50:37 EDT
Thanks for the report, right, it should print nicer error when someone tries to trick dnf with "LANG=C" and there's diacritics inside. The other option would be to continue as usual and replace these words with "<wrongly encoded word>" string or so.

This is too big hammer IMO. I'm pretty sure there is some "standard" how to handle these cases, i.e. replace the character with '?' or simply "force encoding" which would display at least something partially useful.
