Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 27912
TUI/Japanese-pkg. group selection screen has funny chars.
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:41:08 EDT
TUI http/ftp/hard drive custom install
using the arrow keys to scroll through the package groups
causes funny characters to appear in the package group titles.
they disappear once the item is 'hi-lighted'.
this seems like a cosmetic bug--the overall function of the screen
doesn't appear to be compromised
Is this one of those slang-j issues?
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Yes it's a minislang-j issue. I don't know about the MUST-FIX status-- we're
currently using the "partially Japanese patched" minislang-j (vs the real
slang-j which should work) due to space issues.
If space is not the issue, should we assign one of the ja team to fix minislang
Tago and I have a patch for the full slang for I18N/multibyte if we can use it.
Is this a problem in Hampton?
The package groups is ok. but when confirm on automatic partitioning, some
characters on background window is broken. IIRC our patch should be fixed this
Is there a particular person I should assign this to? Space IS not an issue in
stage 2, right jeremy?
minislang is only used in the loader, so it isn't an issue here. We're already
using the default system libslang for stage2, so if it gets fixed there, it
should fix it (well, unless it exposes other newt bugs)
Ok, I see. I think probably this problem will be related libslang, because
libslangj should be fixed this problem.
BTW It seems that slang on Debian has UTF-8 support. I'll try it for integration
whether this problem is fixed or not.

Patch to improve the handling multibytes. but not perfect., I think.
Created attachment 60011 [details]
fix the wordwrap issue.
Bill -- you're the one who's looked the most at this stuff recently I think.
This isn't really relevant to the new newt's mb wrap code; hopefully, that
solves this issue.
