Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mc on console
2. set some (5) output lines in "Options - Layout"
3. display some utf8 characters in output lines. For example type 'date', then
with czech locale set (cs_CZ.UTF-8) it displays "bÅe" for "Mar"
"bÅe" is displayed as "b=e" within output lines.
Press Ctrl-O ... everything is displayed correctly, switch back and you will see
UTF8 characters should be displayed correctly within output lines.
Problem also in f7 with mc-4.6.1a-45.20070124cvs.fc7.i386.
Based on the age of this report can you please verify this bug still exists in
Fedora 7 or Fedora 8
Bug still exists in F7 and F8
I am changing version to F8.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
