mc in Korean directory name.
Comment 2 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-10-19 06:06:19 EDT
Known issue. The fixes to the UTF-8 patch should fix this.

Jindrich, you should use the original (but fixed against CVS) utf8
patch, plus Vladimir's utf8-fix, utf8-hints and utf8-input patches.
Together these should fix most utf8 issues, and issues with other locales.

Sangu, please also tell which terminal you use as that might also make
a difference. And make sure you set input to 8 bits.

Jindrich, wrt this you might want to use SuSE's 8bit patch. Take from
one of their srpms, or from
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2004-10-20 16:47:46 EDT

please try out the newest version I have built today: mc-4.6.1-0.8. We
have there all the recommended UTF8 patches so I think this should be
fixed in this release. I cannot test it as I don't understand Korean.
Please let me know if that helped.


Comment 4 sangu 2004-10-21 09:35:05 EDT
This problem still happen in mc-4.6.1-0.8,
and  current mc package not view and not edit Korean unicode document.
Comment 5 sangu 2004-10-21 09:44:49 EDT
Sorry, my mistaken posting. 
mc-4.6.1-0.8 can edit and view unicode document.

But the problem still happenes in directory with Korean name.

Comment 6 Jindrich Novy 2004-10-21 10:43:31 EDT
Ok, I have to test it somehow in order to do some fixup for this.
Could you please post here (as an attachment) a simple bash script
that only creates a Korean named directory in an actual path? It will
help me much to investigate the whole thing and help you get rid of
the issue.

Thanks, Jindrich

Request bash script by Jindrich

Test in en_US.UTF-8 or ko_KR.UTF-8

(My first script for all my linux life)
Comment 8 Jindrich Novy 2004-10-22 03:01:23 EDT
Sangu, congratulations for the first bash script! Thanks for it, now
I'm able to reproduce the bug. I'll try to fix it today.
Comment 9 Jindrich Novy 2004-10-22 04:27:11 EDT
The error was in the second part of uglydir patch. The is_printable()
function returns that the Korean characters are not printable, so
question marks are displayed instead of them. Since a case noticed in
bug 127164 does not occur when UTF8 is enabled, I dropped the second
part of the uglydir patch and it is displayed correctly now.
Comment 10 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-10-23 10:25:31 EDT
Jindrich, can you please submit the (fixed) uglydir patch upstream? TIA.
