Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15025
bogus characters for fetching files in Norwegian locale
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
After fetching a file with http, I get this at the bottom:
14:13:54 (202.06 KB/s) - ?czslova.gz.2? lagret [6277304/6277304]
("lagret" means "saved"). The "?" around the file name should be "'"
LANG=no_NO wget my_url_here
glibc thinks those quote characters aren't printable. Re-assigning there.
Whoops, never mind, wget is being stupid and running setlocale
for LC_MESSAGES, which leaves it with the old LC_CTYPE.
Will be fixed in next wget build.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1
This was fixed right after Bill's message.
But it showed up again in time for Red Hat Linux 7 :(
The characters get lost in gettext somewhere; they're all
'?' by the time gettext returns.
The error was in the locale files supplied with wget... for some weird reason,
Norwegian (and Danish) was marked as being iso-8859-2. Fixed in 1.6-2
