Description Bill Huang 2001-04-13 06:37:26 UTC
Since OUTPUT_CHARSET=EUC-JP is not set in env,
some Japanese help can't be displayed on console or gnome-terminal.
such as gpg --help.

This problem should be fixed in Anaconda, shouldn't it?

Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-04-13 15:29:33 UTC
Applications that output characters in a locale that isn't POSIX *must* call

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-13 16:13:59 UTC
So, you're saying this is an app problem and not an initscripts problem?

Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-04-13 16:30:06 UTC
absolutely.  If you set OUTPUT_CHARSET this will override the charset used in an
application that uses setlocale() properly.  This means that if you set
OUTPUT_CHARSET to EUC-JP and then run a properly written program using
LANG=de_DE it will not display properly.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-13 22:11:04 UTC
OK, assigning to gpg.
