Description Johan Cwiklinski 2008-01-21 18:18:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; fr-FR; rv: Gecko/20071213 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
There are some issues using eggdrop with non-latin characters, and UTF-8.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install eggdrop
2. Connect to an utf8 channel
3. Send '.say #chan éèàô', irc clients which are not configured to read iso-8859-1 will see '????'

Actual Results:
Wrong encoding.

Expected Results:
Correct encoding :-)

Additional info:
I've find a patch and try to include it in the specfile.
Complete patch should be found here : http://www.egghelp.org/files.htm#patches (eggdrop1.6.18-sp.0007.diff)

New specfile, diff and patch are available at :

Hope that can help :)
Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2008-01-22 13:43:38 EST
Well, does this patch work without breaking *anything* else? And the even more 
interesting question is: Why was this patch not accepted by upstream? I'm less 
interested to add "features" which upstream does not accept...
Comment 2 Johan Cwiklinski 2008-01-22 17:08:23 EST
It does not seem to break anything, though it should be tested anyway.

Why was the patch not included upstream ? I have no idea ; i don't even know if
it was proposed upstream...

I'm not considering missing character encoding as a feature, but as a bug ; I
need UTF support (for french chars) and I've found this patch that's all :-)
